The Pueblo Community College Foundation services all of the PCC campuses — Pueblo, Fremont, and our new Southwest Colorado Community College campuses — we have brought positive changes to the lives of individuals, families and communities.
PCC’s core values are to build partnerships, provide a positive environment, respect diversity, celebrate achievements, exhibit integrity, demonstrate teamwork, offer innovative programs and services, improve continuously, be responsive and be accountable.
The PCC Foundation bridges the gap between the needs and resources of Pueblo Community College. Our non-profit, tax exempt corporation raises funds to provide assistance to PCC students. We embrace, as our guiding value, exceptional service to students and partners by providing total educational and training solutions. The Foundation supports the College in areas that are not supported by taxes, tuition, or grants.
Our Students, Our Success, Our Purpose
As a local community college, PCC changes lives in so many ways. We’ve created a climate that encourages personal and academic growth by preparing students for entry into the workforce, career advancement, or career change through certificate and associate degree programs. We also prepare our students for transfer to baccalaureate institutions by providing transfer degrees, courses, and services.
The Pueblo Community College Foundation is a non-profit 501(c) (3) entity. As such, tax-deductible gifts of cash, securities, personal and/or real property are welcomed. All gifts are used to achieve the stated mission of the Foundation, which is to support scholarship and programs at Pueblo Community College.
PCC is state-supported, but the PCC Foundation is totally funded by contributions. As you review some of the ways to chart your personal gifting and planned giving strategies, please keep the Pueblo Community College Foundation in mind. We know that you support causes, events and programs for a variety of reasons. It may be a strong belief in the same values and services as the PCC Foundation or, simply personal preference. We need you!
