California Community College Scholarship Endowment

Thank you for making possibility permanent!


Over the course of three years, California Community Colleges raised $67.7 million for a permanent scholarship fund that will support students who struggle to afford the ever-rising cost of an education. This endowment will fund at least 3,380 scholarships every year, forever. (Download a detailed breakdown of fundraising results.)

The Endowment and corresponding three-year fundraising campaign were made possible thanks to the generosity of The Bernard Osher Foundation. In May 2008, The Osher Foundation made a historic pledge to the California Community Colleges, giving an unprecedented lead gift of $25 million to establish the endowment, and committing additional match dollars for amounts raised by the system.

The result today is a $67.7 million scholarship fund that will provide much-needed financial support to students at each and every California Community College, forever.

Even though the match campaign is complete, you can still contribute to the Endowment, making the possibility of a better life a reality for generations of students to come.
