The CCCC Foundation's monthly giving program is designed to help meet the needs of Cerro Coso students. When you give monthly, you're making a vital, concrete contribution to the success of the College and the resiliency of this Foundation. For as little cost as you already spend on, say, a monthly Netflix subscription, you can have a tremendous impact on the lives of our local students!

Donors can designate cash gifts for a particular fund, scholarship, or program; or, they can offer unrestricted gifts to support the areas of greatest need as determined by the College!

All new scholarships at Cerro Coso Community College are accepted through the Cerro Coso Community College Foundation. The College Development Director assists donors in developing a scholarship that fulfills their goals and expectations.

To be perpetual, scholarships at the College require a minimum of $5000, which may be accumulated over a two (2) year period (or longer with prior approval) from the date of the establishment of the scholarship. Perpetual scholarships award only a portion of the income from the endowment as determined by the Donor and/or the College.

If you are interested in establishing a perpetual scholarship please contact:
