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.
CC Celebrates Generosity Day March 27
The first day of Block 7 marks Generosity Day at Colorado College — denoting the time of year when tuition no longer covers the cost of a CC education. Celebrate outside of Worner Center and leave a thank you note explaining what you're most grateful for.
The split is approximately 70/30 with tuition and fees covering 70 percent and gifts from donors making up the 30 percent difference.
Generosity Day is a tradition that calls to attention the philanthropic gifts from generous donors that make a CC education possible. To celebrate, the entire campus community, including students, faculty, and staff, express their appreciation to those donors.
Without gifts from donors, tuition would be significantly higher. Generosity Day raises awareness about the tremendous positive impact that philanthropy has on the college.
