Lay It Out Events proudly supports local nonprofits & community organizations

Every year, a portion of proceeds from Balloons Over Bend is donated to a local nonprofit. In 2023, COCC Foundation will be this year’s beneficiary!


The COCC Foundation supports COCC, and its students, to ensure that the college is a vital, accessible, premier educational resource in Central Oregon.


We provide financial assistance to students, fiscal support for college programs, and occasionally run campaigns in support of needed college capital improvements.


Thank you for considering a gift to the Central Oregon Community College Foundation. There are several ways to give, all of which make a great impact.

Since 1955, Central Oregon Community College Foundation scholarships have enabled students to learn new skills, earn technical certificates, complete two-year associate degrees and be prepared to pursue the remainder of their undergraduate studies at a college or university.
We are proud, and exceedingly grateful, that Central Oregon Community College Foundation scholarships have impacted the lives of tens of thousands of Central Oregon students. These students come from all corners of the College district and share one belief that education can change and improve their lives.
Our scholarships provide financial support, but for many students being a scholarship recipient means something more. It means that someone believes in them enough to provide them with the financial resources needed to attend COCC. It means that someone else believes in their dreams.

Lay It Out Events has donated over $300,000 to local charities over the past 10 years

In the past 10 years, LIOE has donated over $300,000 to local charities and nonprofits.
