Shasta College Foundation
Sponsored Events and Projects


The Foundation is able to fund important events and projects on campus that may not otherwise happen, thanks to the generous support of our staff through our Pay it Forward: Voluntary Payroll Deduction Program.

This program, brings in around $15,000 annually. All monies collected through this program are used to support and encourage a creative activist college environment. The primary beneficiary of this work is our students. We encourage staff to participate in this very important and worthwhile program.
