Annual Giving

Your gift to Colorado College supports programs that enhance the CC experience on the Block Plan, student scholarships, and faculty resources for teaching and research.

Investments from donors like you are increasingly vital to sustaining and advancing CC's culture of engaged teaching and learning on the Block Plan, the college's expanding reach and reputation, and its distinctive place in the Rocky Mountain West and within higher education.

Every gift matters. Each and every donor helps CC fulfill its mission, and we value every one. Learn more about CC's Donor Recognition Societies.

The Annual Fund provides unrestricted support for priority projects.


NEW! 2024 Gift Challenge Opportunity

Thanks to an extraordinary unrestricted bequest from the late CC alumnus William "Bill" Clement '42, CC is providing donors with a unique opportunity to amplify your influence on the area of the college that means the most to you. 

From now until Dec. 31, 2024, maximize your impact toward the Annual Fund when you help direct the allocation of $2 million in a one-to-one gift match (up to $25,000). This initiative, aiming to further amplify the spirit of generosity initiated by Bill Clement, invites supporters to actively participate in shaping the college’s future.

The CC Annual Fund now gives you the opportunity to designate which area of the college speaks most to your personal passions and values. What aspect of the CC experience do you want to effect? 

  • Annual Fund – The Annual Fund is how we do more by covering expenses that go beyond the day-to-day operations of the college. It supports each of the five priority areas with greater flexibility to meet emergent needs.
  • Antiracism – Diverse perspectives and experiences are essential to our collective success. We remain dedicated to fostering a supportive environment where students from all backgrounds thrive. 
  • Financial Aid – When access to CC is limited, so is the richness of the learning environment.  Support for financial aid ensures more students can benefit from the unique learning experience CC provides regardless of their socioeconomic status.  
  • Mental Health and Wellness – CC Students learn through one of the most rigorous academic methods, the Block Plan. To help our students successfully meet that challenge, we are committed to elevating the level of comprehensive care and support to all members of our community. 
  • Parents Fund– The Parents Fund is a way for current and past parents to show support for the college. Similar to the Annual Fund, it supports each of the five priority areas with the necessary flexibility to meet emergent needs.
  • Student Opportunities – Every student should be able to take part in the unique opportunities available as part of the CC experience. From research grants, field studies, and internships, these outside the classroom opportunities make up some of the fondest memories and most impact learning experiences for CC students. 
  • Sustainability – Sustainability is more than a concept, it’s a principle that permeates every aspect of our community. We integrate environmental responsibility and stewardship into our academic programs, campus operations, and community outreach, empowering our students and faculty to lead by example. 

On behalf of our CC community, thank you for your continued support and commitment to our college.
