STATEMENT FROM THE Executive Director

"Community colleges are an American invention that has put publicly funded higher education close to home for millions of students for more than 100 years. They are uniquely inclusive institutions that welcome all who desire to learn, regardless of wealth, heritage or previous academic experience.

Your support is so important! Over the past 20 years, the State of Colorado has reduced its funding for community colleges by more than 50%, forcing significant tuition increases and cuts to student support programs. Your investment in scholarships and other student support efforts is essential if we are to achieve our goal to create an environment that makes it possible for every student to make it all the way to graduation. Because of you, thousands of students launch from PPCC well prepared to continue their education or to enter the workforce highly equipped to be effective, productive employees right here in the communities where we live.

In 2015, the Foundation for PPCC was able to award over $500,000 in scholarships to nearly 300 PPCC students. But, with an annual student enrollment of more than 20,000, there were many students who did not receive our help. Your gift, along with those of thousands of others, make it possible to award scholarships, provide emergency financial assistance to students in need, launch new programs designed to improve student persistence to graduation and much more. We can't do it without you!"
