    Corporate and Foundation Giving

    Corporate and Foundation Relations

    The generosity of foundations, corporations, and government agencies is advancing CC's mission.

    Their gifts and grants have funded scholarships for students, faculty development programs, international study opportunities, student-faculty collaborative research, capital improvements, endowments, and much more. Many grants support Building on the Block, the Colorado College strategic plan, which works in conjunction with and is funded by Building on Originality: The Campaign for Colorado College.

    The Office of Corporate and Foundation Relations (CFR) at Colorado College (also known as the Grants Office) brings together internal and external constituencies to obtain institutional support to advance CC's mission and programs. The CFR staff offers skills and experience in research, strategy development, writing, and stewardship support for CC administrators and program directors who are looking to fund institutional priorities, including multidisciplinary, extracurricular, and curriculum development projects.

    The CFR Office welcomes the interest of potential partners – from CC administrators and programs directors who want to seek external grants, to representatives of private foundations, corporate giving programs, or other agencies that are considering contributions to CC.
