The Foundation for California Community Colleges is the statewide non-profit supporting the California Community College system, the largest system of higher education in the nation. Incorporated in 1998, the Foundation serves as the official auxiliary to the California Community Colleges’ Board of Governors and the systemwide Chancellor’s Office.

The Foundation is the trusted partner of the California Community Colleges— facilitating collaboration, accelerating innovation, and increasing systemwide resources.

Our Mission
The Foundation’s mission is to benefit, support, and enhance the missions of the California Community College system.

As the official foundation of the California Community Colleges’ Board of Governors and Chancellor’s Office, the Foundation is a unique 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that provides effective services and innovative solutions for the largest higher education system in the nation. Foundation programs reach all 113 California Community Colleges and 72 districts, and are designed to benefit students, colleges, college foundations, and the system as a whole, helping to improve higher education opportunities throughout the state.

In doing our work we seek out opportunities to help facilitate collaboration, accelerate innovation, and increase system-wide resources through a variety of ways, including entrepreneurial programs, philanthropy, and state and federal grants and contracts. As we near the midpoint of our second decade, we are focused on providing centralized support and enhancing our ability to respond quickly to the needs of the system.
