Join us on March 4th, 8:00 a.m.

We are excited to announce our annual scholarship fundraising breakfast will be a virtual event this year, on March 4th from 8:00 to 8:45 a.m. Last year’s breakfast raised $60,000 for scholarships and we hope to reach that goal again this year.

This event is free, but registration is required. The first 100 registrants will receive a "Sunrise Box" with everything you need to enjoy the program.

To continue our work of transforming lives and ensuring a trained workforce for our community, we need your help. Please support the Oxygen for Education Scholarship Breakfast with your presence and your contributions. On behalf of the many students whose lives are changed daily by your generosity, thank you.

$20,000 Rose Foundation Grant Supports CCD Students Impacted by COVID-19

In December 2020, Rose Community Foundation awarded the CCD Foundation $20,000 to support students impacted by COVID-19. This follows a grant received last summer for $15,000 for the same purpose. The CCD Foundation extends its deep appreciation for these resources which will help our students pay rent, buy food, pay medical bills and childcare, and meet other basic human needs.
As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to take its toll on our community and on individuals trying to improve their lives and prepare for careers in this changing economy, the CCD Foundation remains laser-focused on providing scholarships and emergency aid. Every penny donated for this purpose goes to students in need. Thank you to Rose Community Foundation, and thank you for your support.
