The California Community Colleges Scholarship Endowment provides over 3,300 student scholarships each year. Over 90 California Community Colleges participated in fundraising efforts that resulted in a $71 million scholarship endowment that will forever support our students.
The Endowment and corresponding three-year fundraising campaign were made possible thanks to the generosity of The Bernard Osher Foundation. In May 2008, The Osher Foundation made a historic pledge to the California Community Colleges, giving an unprecedented lead gift of $25 million to establish the endowment, and committing additional match dollars for amounts raised by the system.
Even though the match campaign is complete, you can still contribute to the Endowment, making the possibility of a better life a reality for generations of students to come.
