The Columbia College Foundation has been a vital part of this effort for more than 50 years. The Foundation and its supporters provide key links to the community, supporting scholarships, campus improvements, events, and partnering on innocations such as the Columbia College Promise and basic needs support for housing, transportation and emergency needs.
Together, we are here to help students meet the chanllenges of today and tomorrow. Our constant effort is to deliver a student-centered education for excellence, exceptional occupational skills training, and support for our students as they prepare to enter the workforce. Our faculty and staff offer students the tools, coaching, and inspiration to re-imagine their futures and clearly understand their career opportunities - and the Foundation supports us at every step.
Whether a student's goal is to earn a certificate in a dynamic, high-paying trade, receive an associate degree, or transfer to a university program, their time at Columbia will take them a step closer to transforming their life.
It's a vital mission for our community, and we are grateful for your enthusiasm and support for YOUR community college. Thank you for helping our students craft their success stories every day. Go Claim Jumpers!
