From the Block Plan to our remarkable setting in the Rocky Mountain West, the Colorado College experience is truly one-of-a-kind. By giving to CC, you make it possible for current and future students to maximize the immersive learning opportunities and outside-the-classroom adventures that make this college such a special place. Donor support helps increase access to a CC education for promising students of all backgrounds, enables CC to forge meaningful connections with the surrounding community, and continually elevates the campus for the students who live and learn here. Thank you for your generosity.

If your preferred method of giving doesn't appear on this page, please contact us at supportcc@coloradocollege.edu or call (800) 782-6306, option 1.

Please Note: CC is upgrading our donor database. With this implementation, our gift processing team will be emailing all gift receipts and acknowledgements when possible, starting this spring. This includes gifts from donors who have given by mail, via stock transfer, credit card gifts over the phone, etc. To receive your gift receipts and acknowledgements via email, please be sure you have an accurate email address on file with CC. If you are not sure, please email records@coloradocollege.edu or add your preferred email address at www.coloradocollege.edu/updatemyinfo. In addition, gift receipts may be delayed during the next few months as we transition to our new system. Thank you for your patience and understanding!



To make a gift by credit card, please use our secure online giving site. We accept MasterCard, Visa, Discover, and American Express. 

We also offer the option to give via Google Pay, Apple Pay, Venmo, PayPal, and a one-time ACH.

Reunion Giving

Reunions are a time to reconnect with friends, relive memories, and experience CC today. When you and classmates come together, you can also make an impact for CC students by participating in your class’s reunion class gift project. Class gift projects are selected by each class’s volunteer reunion committee. Committee members come together to discuss what topics and areas of the college their class valued most while at CC, as well as what is most meaningful and important to them now. The class gift project is different for every class.

Memorial Gifts

A gift made to honor or remember a loved one can be used to meet areas of greatest need, or can be designated to a specific area of the college. Learn more about memorial gifts.

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.
