DCCCD employees


The DCCCD Foundation provides resources to help our college grant teams be effective stewards of grant-funded projects. The office also offers giving opportunities for employees to make an additional impact on students’ lives and the community in others ways.

Giving to DCCCD

We know that as a DCCCD employee, you play an important role in the lives of DCCCD students every day.

Employee Giving Campaign

The DCCCD Employee Giving Campaign is an annual invitation to make an even greater impact. Thousands of our past and current employees just like you have made a difference and left a legacy. It just makes sense; whether you fund an endowed scholarship, an individual department, or the general fund, your money will make a difference and leave your mark on DCCCD, the students and the community.

Investing in DCCCD allows you to take part in something you love, and worked hard to build!

Planned Giving

Planned giving provides another creative way for you to leave a legacy to DCCCD students. Through planned giving, you can make a lasting impact on tomorrow's students and ensure the assets you leave behind are well-secured for a cause that you care about.


Crowdfunding, also known as peer-to-peer fundraising, leverages the internet to allow clubs and organizations at our colleges to raise money for a specific cause or project by asking family and friends to donate money, usually in small amounts, over a relatively short period of time.
