The Importance of Public & Private Funding Working as One

When establishing the college’s Imagine & Achieve Campaign, CCAC sought to capitalize on the full range of funding opportunities available in both the private and public sectors. The result was a $30 million comprehensive campaign designed to fund a wide array of capital and operational collegewide initiatives.

By following this national trend in fundraising, the campaign was able to leverage both public and private funding sources to secure funds which might otherwise not be available. Because of this strategic coordination, CCAC not only met its $30 million funding goal but did so ahead of schedule. This early success has enabled the campaign to be extended, with a stretch goal of $10 million added to provide further funding at this critical time in the college’s history. With that, the CCAC Board of Trustees and the Imagine & Achieve Campaign steering committee has declared a revised campaign goal of $40 million.
