Edmonds Community College Foundation recently held a President’s Club event at the Woodway home of Wendy and Mike Popke. College President Jean Hernandez addressed the crowd of donors and expressed gratitude for their generosity to the club, which requires a minimum annual donation of $1,000. Each year the money raised by the foundation transforms lives in the community by providing more than 200 scholarships, ranging from $1,000-$4,500. The Foundation also funds 15 Complete the Dream scholarships for students needing assistance in their final quarter, 17 innovation grants, $15,000 in awards of excellence, and $20,000 in emergency student funding. By supporting the foundation, the members continue the mission to support “access, success, and excellence for students, faculty, and staff” at the college.
