The CCAC Educational
Foundation is the fundraising and benefactor arm of the college. It seeks to
create vital connections between the college and the wider community
to ensure the ongoing viability of the college.
Established in 1979, the CCAC Educational Foundation grew out of the understanding that the Community College of Allegheny County would need additional resources in order to provide comprehensive training programs, to ensure continued accessibility and to maintain its reputation of academic excellence in higher education. Each year, the Foundation awards thousands of dollars in scholarships. The scholarships and endowments express the community’s commitment to helping students achieve their educational goals.
