Faculty and Staff Resources

What is the COCC Foundation? 

  • The COCC Foundation is a separate 501(c)(3) organization whose overall mission is to support scholarships, college programs and capital campaigns at COCC
  • Staff for the Foundation are College employees who provide services to the Foundation through a contract between the College and the Foundation
  • Organizationally the Foundation is housed under the President's Office and is also governed by a separate board of directors made up of volunteers from the community
  • The Foundations top priority has traditionally been raising funds for student scholarships. The capital campaign for the Jungers Culinary Center was also led by the Foundation
