In appreciation of our donors

 

In 2020, we celebrated resilient students, adaptive programs and a caring community. As a result, 1,236 students graduated with degrees, certificates, GEDs and adult high school diplomas as well as $23M in CCC Foundation assets.

Donors provided a record breaking one million dollars in student scholarships, emergency funds and program support for the college. In our third annual Donor Appreciation Month, we honor your contributions.
