Ways to Give

The Contra Costa College Foundation offers many ways for you to show your support. Find out which one is best for you.

Become a CCCF Sustainer

CCCF Sustainers are a committed group of people who support our students via a monthly donation.

Support the Wrap-Around Fund

Our primary unrestricted fund, the Wrap-Around, provides emergency funds to students faced with unexpected financial crises. Financial challenges is one of the top reasons why CCC students withdraw. 85% of CCC students come from low or lower-middle income households. Attending college is already a financial burden for students. When a financial emergency occurs, students often drop out because they can no longer afford to pay for school or they have to work more hours. By alleviating these financial difficulties, students don’t have to choose between their financial stability and their education. A donation to the Wrap-Around directly supports immediate student needs such as childcare, rent increase, transportation, and groceries. Since its inception in Fall 2017, Wrap-Around funds have assisted over 160 CCC students, providing a total of $88,000 in aid and successfully keeping 93% of recipients in their classes. With your generosity, together we can keep student in their classes and break down financial barriers to higher education.
