Olympic College Foundation

The Olympic College Foundation is the Olympic College’s official gift-receiving entity. The Foundation provides scholarships, including for students attending the archaeological field school at Yama Village on Bainbridge Island. By developing a field school at the community college level, OC offers an affordable learning experience and recruits scholars from demographic groups that have traditionally been underrepresented in field archaeology. During its first three years, the project has discovered over 4,700 artifacts and the roots of Japanese-American culture in collaboration with the Bainbridge Island Japanese-American Community, BI Historical Museum, BI Metro Park & Recreation District, and the BI Historic Preservation Commission.
