Anschutz Foundation Scholarship Grant Inspires New Gifts to CCD Foundation

The CCD Foundation is required to match this grant with new donations, thereby doubling the impact of these dollars, and helping twice as many students achieve a brighter future. If you have never made a gift, or you haven’t made a gift recently, your donation now could be matched by this grant! Consider doubling your impact today! Donate Now

Newest Nineteen Sixty-Seven Legacy Society member

The CCD Foundation wishes to thank Dr. Margaret Rust for leaving a legacy by including the CCD Foundation in her estate plan. This bequest will establish the Dr. Margaret Rust Women’s Diversity Scholarship providing scholarships to first-generation, female students of color. Dr. Rust has also committed to funding this scholarship beginning in Fall 2021, with a 5-year pledge of $12,500.  We are excited to identify candidates for this life-changing opportunity.  For more information about the Nineteen Sixty-Seven Legacy Society, and how you can have an impact in perpetuity on the lives of students, visit Legacy for more information. 

CCD receives additional grant funding from the State of Colorado

The Colorado Department of Higher Education recently announced a $325,000 grant in scholarship support to CCD students for the 2021-2022 academic year. The grant will support Coloradans displaced by the COVID-19 pandemic, including those laid off or furloughed, experienced decreased earnings, had job offers rescinded, or could not enter the workforce because of adverse economic conditions.
