About Coastline Foundation

In 1984, it became obvious to the Coast College District Board of Trustees that private funding had become a necessary supplement to enable the District's three colleges to sustain their high level of quality and innovation. One year later, the time arrived to develop new funding mechanisms for our community college system. Coastline College Foundation held its first official meeting as an incorporated 501 (C) (3) organization in November 1985.


For over 30 years, the Foundation serves the College as an independent organization with a full board of directors, staff allocated by the College, and a full range of activities and services to the College. We receives gifts of time, talent and resources from hundreds of donors each year, who are committed to changing a life....one student at a time. Coastline College is unique in that it serves many communities rather than being affiliated in only one.



The Foundation plays a significant role in Coastline College and currently supports campaigns for computer equipment, scholarships, planned giving, and many other programs and services.
