Cascadia College Foundation

A nonprofit organization

A top transfer college for the University of Washington, University of Washington Bothell, and Seattle University, among others, Cascadia College delivers rigorous, learner-centered education to every student and prepares them well for the challenges of four-year colleges and universities. 

And with your help, the Cascadia College Foundation is putting that education in reach for our next generation of leaders.

Alum Erik Byland knows firsthand the impact that the Foundation can make in the lives of students. Oldest of five brothers, Erik had a tough time affording college. That's why he was so grateful for the scholarship that helped make the first two years of his education so affordable. Now at the University of Washington’s Foster School of Business where he’s pursuing a degree in finance.


Cascadia's focus:  active learning ... environmentally sensitivity ... globally aware ... technologically advanced. Cascadia prepares students to enter (or re-enter) the workplace with hands-on, practical experience working with real world issues and technology.

The Environmental Technology and Sustainable Practices (ETSP) program is one great example. Through both certificate and associate degree programs, the ETSP program gives laid off workers access to state of the art technology, giving them the tools they need to be marketable in today's challenging economy. 

And the Foundation helps propel our students!


Imagine if just the cost of a bus pass stood between you and getting the education that could change your life. How demoralized would you be? And how grateful would you be if someone stepped in to help?
