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.

Nonprofit Professional Mini-training
ExpoThis 16-hour/four consecutive Saturday course is intended
for nonprofit professionals and those interested in a career in
nonprofit development. The course is designed to introduce the
student to the many local grant makers and their missions, to
begin relationship building by introducing the student to
potential sources for funding and identify information via the
Internet and published resources. This four-week course
will include an overview of charitable gifts, fundraising
basics and how to begin writing a winning grant
Grant Writers SeriesGrants are very important to the survival of your
nonprofit organization. Hiring a grant writing professional is
great if your organization can afford it. Even so, knowing some
grant writing techniques are beneficial. Having a representative
from your organization with a knowledgeable point of view, even
beginning the proposals, is much more helpful than having a
consultant write the entire proposal. Having grant writing
knowledge could be a very big asset and makes for a better
collaboration if you indeed do hire a professional down the road.
Besides having a very good handle on your organization's "grant"
future, having skills in grant writing will make someone more
marketable when job seeking.
Volunteer Management ProgramCCAC is committed to providing fundamental volunteer
management training to every person directing volunteer services in
Southwestern Pennsylvania. Our classes provide means for
hiring, retaining and appreciating volunteers so they become a
valuable part of your staff.
