A person or couple can name the Foundation as a beneficiary in their estate documents, regardless whether they use a will or living trust.

When you include the Clackamas Community College Foundation in your estate, you become an esteemed member of The Heritage Society.

Donor Profile: John Snively

“I love the students at CCC. They are eager to learn, enthusiastic and curious. I have a passion for geology and biology and I wanted to share that passion with CCC students. I was a geology professor at CCC from 1973 to 2003 and developed a number of classes, including the Malheur Field Trip and Natural History of Death Valley. I also donated some of my collections including fossils, minerals, and birds to display in the DeJardin science building on the Oregon City campus.

I shared my passion with students for over three decades, and I wanted to continue even after I retired. Just because I’m not there to provide field trips, doesn’t mean they have to stop! I know firsthand the struggles many students face, but those struggles shouldn’t stop them from realizing their dreams. So, I started the John Snively Endowment to provide scholarships for the science field trip programs offered at CCC. This endowment enables me to make a difference in students’ lives for many decades to come, and that’s the best legacy I could ask for.”
