Support PNCA Students

PNCA Students Dream Big.

Pacific Northwest College of Art believes in the power of creativity to transform lives.

PNCA students are innovators, creators, and problem solvers.  They leave PNCA with the tools to be transformative change-makers in our world.

PNCA faculty members care deeply about their students and the education they provide. Our faculty are practicing artists, writers, sculptors and video designers recognized nationally and internationally for their accomplishments. 

At PNCA, we believe in giving students the opportunities they need to succeed. Here are a few of the ways we give back each year:

  • PNCA awards close to $5 Million annually in student scholarships
  • We welcome more than 15,000 people to campus each year for 100+ FREE lectures, exhibitions, public programs, and workshops. That number will grow in our new home at the Arlene and Harold Schnitzer Center for Art and Design.
  • 46% of our annual budget goes DIRECTLY to supporting student services, student life, programs, clubs, and more.

Thank you for your support!

PNCA’s free public programs actively fuel Portland’s cultural life through exhibitions, lectures, and internationally recognized visiting artists, designers, and creative leaders.
