Giving to CC

Each and every year, donors like you permit CC to offer scholarships for promising students, attract and retain the best faculty for the Block Plan, and generate unique opportunities for students. Give now.

Campus in Spring

Our commitment to donors: Colorado College does not trade, share, or sell donor information to any outside party, organization, or vendor for non-college purposes, unless required by law.

Multiply your Impact through Matching Gifts

The impact of your gift to Colorado College may be doubled or tripled.

Many employers sponsor matching gift programs and will match most charitable contributions made by their employees. To find out if your company has a matching gift policy, visit our Matching Gifts page or contact your employer's human resource department.

Generosity Day: March 21

The first day of Block 7 is Generosity Day — which marks the time of year when tuition no longer covers the cost of a Colorado College education and philanthropic gifts from generous donors kick in. Each year, students and members of the CC community express their appreciation to those who make a CC education possible by placing flags around the Earle Flagpole, each one representing a donor who has given during the year.

Generosity Day was created to raise awareness among the student body about the impact that philanthropy has on the college. Without gifts from donors, tuition would be a significantly larger amount.

CC's Priority Projects

In the college's strategic plan, The Colorado College Plan: Building on the Block, recommendations were made to provide additional support for maximizing the capability of the Block Plan and enhancing CC’s distinctive place of learning. From those recommendations, several priorities emerged, including the renovation of Tutt Library, increased investment in student scholarships, and the creation of an innovation institute.

CC Receives $8.5 Million for Innovation

Colorado College has received an anonymous $8.5 million commitment that will provide support for the development of an innovation program, including funds for an innovation facility and a chaired professorship in innovation.

Library Renovation Garners $7 Million in Foundation Grants

Colorado College has received grants of $5 million from Inasmuch Foundation and $2 million from the Helen K. and Arthur E. Johnson Foundation to support the renovation and expansion of the college’s library, which could break ground as early as summer 2016.

The CC Endowment

The purpose of Colorado College's permanent endowment is to support students.
