The Clinton Community College Foundation, Inc. is a separate, yet affiliated organization that raises private funds annually and awards those funds to CCC students through various scholarships and financial assistance programs.

The Foundation was organized in 1971 as a not-for-profit corporation, organized under the laws of New York State and granted tax-exempt status by the IRS.  Governed by an independent Board of Directors, the Foundation's day-to-day operations are managed by the Office of Institutional Advancement.

The Foundation Board of Directors is comprised of community and college leaders committed to the common belief that  higher education ought to be within reach of all who desire to learn, excel, and succeed. From its humble beginnings, the Foundation has grown into a financially sound and integral part of the college community.

Mission Statement

The CCC Foundation is enthusiastically dedicated to raising private funds in support of the 2020-2025 Strategic Plan in order to transform the lives of CCC students, faculty, staff, and the surrounding community. 

Values Statement

Clinton Community College is a treasured resource within the North Country community. Many impactful residents within the North Country community, and beyond, were able to get their start through the opportunity to take classes at or earn a degree from Clinton Community College. 

All funds raised by the CCC Foundation are raised with the intent of bringing opportunities to CCC students and the CCC Community that otherwise would not be possible.

The Foundation Board of Directors is deeply grateful to all of its generous donors.  We welcome additional donations of any size in support of our efforts to make a state of the art education a reality for everyone in our community.
