Make a Gift

CCAC has a longstanding legacy, over 50 years, of service in addressing issues of access, success and workforce development, particularly for historically under-represented and economically disadvantaged populations in our region. The College has been thoughtful and strategic in establishing support structures and programs aimed at eliminating the social barriers that accompany poverty for its students, such as the establishment of food pantries, emergency scholarships, free access to online books via open education resources (OERs), success coaches, advisors, and counselors. Your gift to the CCAC Educational Foundation supports College’s focus on student success.
