The CCCC Foundation and its Board members are passionate about making a difference in the lives of individual students, campuses, the workforce, and their communities. Together, they are making it possible for students to not only improve their own lives, but also change the lives of others. They do this by supporting student scholarships, the Cerro Coso Promise, Campus Hunger FREE program, student programs and activities on campus like Phi Theta Kappa, and professional development for employees. “We couldn’t do what we do without the support of our foundation and the generous donations of private individuals, businesses, and organizations,” said College President Sean Hancock.  “It’s a game changer.”
