The Contra Costa College Foundation serves as an umbrella to the following affiliate organizations. Through affiliation with the Foundation these groups also enjoy its non-profit, tax-exempt status, as well as access to the Foundation’s staff.

Alumni & Friends Association

Members of the Alumni & Friends Association support Contra Costa College through donations to the CCC Foundation’s annual fund drive and by promoting the College in the community.

CCC welcomes the engagement of Alumni & Friends with campus life, events, activities and giving back. This could involve serving on Advisory Boards for our many Career & Technical Education programs, joining Friends of the Library, teaching a summer class with College for Kids, mentoring middle and high school students through Metas or CCC science students through the Center for Science Excellence, or simply attending and enjoying Campus Events.

Special events allow alumni to re-connect and reminisce about their CCC experiences.  Let us know that you’d like to be on our email list to be kept informed about CCC and the CCC Foundation. Email your contact information to the CCC Foundation.
