Annual Giving Campaign: FAQs

What is the CCBC Annual Giving Campaign?
CCBC alumni and friends are invited to lend philanthropic support to CCBC students in various different ways. These contributions will provide an extra margin of excellence that allows us to perform our mission – providing an accessible, affordable, and high quality education to our students.

Where will the contribution be used?
You have the opportunity to choose to designate your gift to a particular CCBC campus or school, the alumni scholarship fund, or the student emergency assistance fund. It is your choice to make.
