College Possible Oregon announced funding from the Wildhorse Foundation in the amount of $5,000 to support our Navigate program.
College Possible’s Navigate high school pilot program serves students in eight rural Oregon high schools across four counties in eastern Oregon. This funding will support students at Irrigon, McLoughlin, Riverside and Umatilla high schools. Student participants in College Possible are paired with a near-peer mentor and receive support in the college exploration and application process. This year, Navigate students will also travel to visit college campuses throughout Oregon and Washington.
The Wildhorse Foundation is managed by the Confederated Tribes of the Umatilla Indian Reservation in partnership with Wildhorse Resort & Casino. Every year the foundation donates over $1 million to local programs and services working in the areas of arts, cultural activities, education, environmental protection, gambling addiction prevention, education and treatment, historic preservation, public health, public safety and salmon restoration. Almost 1,500 organizations have received project funding from the Wildhorse Foundation.
College Possible Oregon is grateful for the Wildhorse Foundation’s investment in eastern Oregon students!
