The CCD Foundation exists to support the Community College of Denver and our students by increasing resources from the community to make college more affordable and achievable.
The CCD Foundation was established to serve a diverse student population. Their need for financial assistance is best explained by their collective statistics. 74% of CCD students are attending college part time while working to financially support themselves and their families. 69% of CCD students are Pell Grant eligible, a common measure of financial need. 58% of our students are the first generation in their family to attend college. CCD is where the American Dream is realized every day and the CCD Foundation is there to assist.
"Being a college student has not been the easiest on my finances, but I managed to make it all the way through my associate degree program without taking out loans because of scholarships."
"Scholarships are helping me get closer to earning my bachelors degree and fulfill my calling to work with children."
"Being awarded scholarships helped me immensely so it was not necessary for me to take out any loans which was a relief."
