How can I help?

The Jefferson Clemente Course is a very grassroots project, and we depend on fundraising, grants and individual donations to pay for tuition, books, childcare and transportation.  Because our community partners offer so much support — classroom, administrative support, copies and marketing, as well as free college credits from Bard College  — the funds we raise each year go directly to support the students and staff.  We like to say that all we need are students, books, a warm place to meet, a sandwich and a cup of coffee, but of course there is more to it than that.  We need money to pay for student’s transportation and childcare as well.  We need to pay our faculty and academic director.

Your generosity can truly make a difference to our students, to their families, and to our community.

Please send your donations to:


Jefferson Clemente Foundation

PO Box 1774

Port Townsend, WA  98368


The Jefferson Clemente Foundation is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization and your donations are tax deductible as allowed by law.

We also need volunteers to help promote and support Clemente through our Citizens Advisory Group and Board of Directors.   If you are interested, please contact us:
