How to GIVE
Make an impact with your support in any of these areas:
Establish a named endowed or annual scholarship for students based on financial need or enrollment in specific programs. CCC Scholarships can pay for tuition, fees, books, supplies, and other educational expenses.
You'll be able to tailor a scholarship that's flexible, meets your goals and helps students succeed.
Without a doubt, CCC changes lives on a daily basis and here is an example of the impact scholarship gifts can make on a student’s life:
I applied for many scholarships because I knew it would be impossible to stay in school and finish my degree without financial assistance. I didn’t think I had a chance to win but it was worth a shot. When the phone call came letting me know I won a scholarship, I couldn’t respond for a few moments. That phone call changed my life! Scholarships allowed me to stay in school and graduate in June 2017. Now, I want to make a difference and give back to all the people and programs who helped me along my path.

Many of our students face multiple obstacles and financial barriers in the path to their educational goals. CCC Foundation scholarships provide critical assistance to those who might not be able to achieve their dreams without this vital help. Financial assistance through scholarships can be their only opportunity to reach their full potential and shape their futures.
Your investment makes a significant impact and provides a pathway for CCC students to pursue their dreams. Thank you!
