Leaving A Lasting Legacy
You can make a difference in the lives of students and in the future of Olney Central College by remembering the OCC Foundation in your estate planning.Your generous gift will enable us to continue providing support in the form of student scholarships, equipment upgrades and facility enhancements. Your investment with the OCC Foundation helps to ensure the success of our students and contributes to the enrichment of our region. Your gift can provide the financial assistance a student needs to complete an associate’s degree, can enable faculty members to continue their education by attending conferences and seminars or can allow for the purchase of state-of-the-art equipment. The funds will ensure area students can earn their transfer or technical degrees at a quality, higher educational institution that is both affordable and close to home.
You will find our graduates are giving back to the community in many ways. Some are teaching in local classrooms or providing nursing and medical care to those in hospitals, doctors’ offices and long-term facilities. Other are protecting us as law enforcement officers or are keeping our vehicles safe as automotive technicians. They are engineers, accountants, lawyers, artists, computer specialists, social workers and others — all making our community a better place to live.
