About the Foundation

Our Mission

Our mission is to benefit, support, and enhance the California Community College system.  As the official foundation of the California Community Colleges' Board of Governors and Chancellor's Office, the Foundation is a unique 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that provides effective services and innovative solutions for the largest higher education system in the nation. Foundation programs reach all 112 California Community Colleges and 72 districts, and several are expanding nationwide. 
The Foundation develops programs and services that save millions of dollars for colleges and students, promote excellence in education, and provide valuable learning opportunities for students throughout the state. We also support the system through special initiatives, statewide awards, and direct donations to the colleges and the Network of California Community College Foundations.  As we enter into our second decade as an organization, we are poised to bring much-needed support to our colleges and to provide even greater opportunities for our students and our state.
