The Community College of Allegheny County provides a supportive and transformative learning environment that prepares graduates to meet critical needs in the region’s workforce.
At CCAC, we believe that life outside the classroom is an important part of your college experience. Each CCAC campus has a variety of activities to enhance your lifestyle – including athletics, cultural events and personal development seminars.
The CCAC Educational
Foundation is the fundraising and benefactor arm of the college. It seeks to
create vital connections between the college and the wider community
to ensure the ongoing viability of the college.
What is the Family Campaign?Each year, the CCAC Educational Foundation leads an annual faculty and staff campaign to raise funds for institutional initiatives, scholarships and the college's area of great need. This year is a continuation of last year’s celebration of CCAC’s 50th Anniversary and the college’s goal to endow 50 new scholarships. Your gift of any size to the 2017 Family Campaign can help your campus achieve its goal of endowing a scholarship, or increasing the amount of an endowed scholarship.
Why should I give?Students are the reason we are all here at CCAC, but sometimes they need a little extra assistance. The CCAC Educational Foundation exists to provide scholarship and loan programs to our students, and to seek private grant support for college projects. The Foundation has even been able to fund several projects in recent years that benefit CCAC employees and, in turn, our students. How will my gift be used?You have the opportunity to select where you want your gift to be used, and 100% of that gift will be allocated to the fund you select. If you choose to support your campus endowed scholarship, your gift will support a scholarship that will exist in perpetuity.How do I participate?You can make a one-time gift by submitting a check or by using our online donation site, or you can contribute throughout the year through payroll deduction by completing a 2017 Family Campaign Pledge Card.The CCAC Educational Foundation is also able to accept appreciated securities and memorial or honorary gifts.Why is my participation important?More foundations than ever evaluate the percentage of employee giving when considering CCAC grant requests.
