Annual Giving

The Fund for CC provides unrestricted support for priority projects.

Now is our time. This academic year has been unlike any other in CC’s 144-year history because alumni like you are stepping forward like never before.

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. In fiscal year 2016-17, the majority of gifts, 9,088 of them, were less than $500 each. Each and every donor helps CC fulfill its mission, and we value every one. Learn more about CC's Donor Recognition Societies.

What Can Your Gift of up to $250 Accomplish?

Gifts from alumni, parents, and friends of the college – no matter the amount – make a significant difference.

  • $20 will allow an incoming freshman to take the StrengthsFinder test with the career center
  • $150 will provide a new set of binoculars for field study
  • $250 will furnish an honorarium for a local author to visit an English class

Last year, gifts from alumni helped contribute to financial aid and scholarships for 664 students who might not otherwise have been able to attend CC.

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.


The DIALogue Center helps keep our network of alumni, parents and prospective students connected to CC! We employ students who will make more than 90,000 annual calls across the United States and Canada.
