Your generosity changes lives

Give the Gift of Education

Donating to Chemeketa is more than an investment in our students, its an investment in our communities.

Making Your Donation

You can make a life-changing gift when you support any of our 150 scholarships or assistance funds. If you're not sure which fund you'd like to support, see our scholarship list or contact our office for areas of greatest need. You can choose to create a login which will pre-fill your information each time you make a gift online. You can also make a gift without registering or logging in.

To ensure your cause is well-funded throughout the year, you can set up a recurring gift that will be deducted from your account monthly. For further instructions and ways to give, check out our giving options below.
