Invest in the Future

The Foundation for Colorado Community Colleges seeks to advance the mission, vision, goals, and objectives of the Colorado Community College System. Specifically, the Foundation actively seeks contributions from public and private sources to make scholarships available statewide, advance key programmatic initiatives, provide training and support for CCCS college foundations, and develop partnerships with community stakeholders to implement state of the art programs that meet the workforce needs of the 21st century.

CCCS is comprised of 13 colleges serving more than 137,000 students statewide, making it the largest provider of higher education in the state. Our open access mission ensures all Coloradans who aspire to enrich their lives have access to quality higher education opportunities.  CCCS students save time and money with affordable tuition and fees, concurrent enrollment, and guaranteed transfer to any public university in Colorado.

The vast majority of our students are Colorado residents and, after graduation, 97% of our students stay in state, becoming the workforce that powers the Colorado economy and the heart of our neighborhoods, businesses, and communities.

To support the administration of our programs and other related expenses, the Foundation for Colorado Community Colleges applies a 5.0% one-time fee to current use gifts at the time the gift is received. While no fee is deducted from any gifts to the principal of an endowment, an endowment fee amounting to approximately 1% of the value of each endowment fund is charged each year.

Please join us in helping students achieve their educational goals by contributing to the Foundation for Colorado Community Colleges. Your generosity will support scholarships for deserving students who aspire to enrich their lives. We appreciate your help in making their dreams become a reality.
