Oregon Promise is a state-funded, student grant program launched by legislation in 2015. The program was championed by several state legislators with input from community college presidents. Those involved with the design and implementation of the program noted that it was inspired by both President Obama’s call for free community college and the Tennessee Promise, which has been providing tuition-free community college statewide to recent high school graduates since 2015.
Our goal is to make higher education a possibility for every American, without regard to their financial circumstances.

If you agree with our goal, our plan, and the urgency of the problem, we ask that you give what you can to help us write the next chapter in our nation’s history of continuously expanding access to universal, free education.
