The Colorado Mountain College Foundation builds sustainable community support for the needs and strategic priorities of Colorado Mountain College and its students.
The CMC Foundation was established to assist Colorado Mountain College secure resources for the highest priority needs of the school. Philanthropic support is needed to bridge the gap between what is funded and what is needed. Gifts to the Foundation allow CMC to offer the most priceless of gifts - a quality education at an affordable cost.
The U.S. Department of Education has ranked CMC among the country's most affordable colleges. CMC offers five Bachelor's Degrees: sustainability studies, business administration, nursing, and our newest: teacher education and applied science.
The CMC Foundation works in partnership with the college supporting CMC's aspiration to be the premier and most inclusive, innovative institution of its kind.
I thought that going back to school was not an option for me due to my age and my income. Now I have learned that it is never too late to return to school and hope for a better future. Once more, I would like to thank you for your kindness and help.

I thought I wasn't going to be able to continue my education at least until my kids finish high school and college, but with your support I can start here and go one step at a time. I don't have money but I have the energy to continue and follow my dreams. Thank you very much for your support!

I received No Barriers help to get my own dorm room. Since then my grades have increased, my test scores have increased and I no longer fall asleep during class. I am now class president of the CLETA program here at the Spring Valley Campus! Once finished, I will be moving to Salida to start my career as a Law Enforcement Officer. Thank you for the opportunity to reach my goals and I hope future students will benefit from the No Barriers Fund as I did.

My experiences at CMC were a really big eye opener for me when I compare them to my experiences at my former college. CMC has small class sizes where students can really interact with the professors and other students. I had no idea a college could be so open and inviting to learners at every stage in their life.
