Capital Community College Foundation and Advisory Council, Inc., founded in 1985 as the Greater Hartford Community College Foundation, was established to support the College in all its endeavors.
Capital Community College Foundation (CCCF), established in 1985 to support Hartford’s two-year public college “in all its endeavors”, serves a key role in creating college access and helping CCC provide a quality, affordable post-secondary education to residents of Greater Hartford.
Students are getting an education here that is vital to a rewarding career. Three quarters of degree seeking students qualify for some form of financial aid. CCCF makes a difference in ensuring Capital creates more access and delivers an education that changes lives.
The Foundation and its Board of Directors raises funds for scholarships, equipment and program enhancements that contribute to student success. We serve as a prudent and effective steward of annual and endowment funds made possible through the generosity of donors.
That’s why we invite you to learn more about Capital and its programs and to join us in advocating for and supporting Hartford’s community college.

The Value of Giving To The CCC Foundation
Capital, with a mission to provide residents with a “quality, affordable education”, lowers the cost roadblock that so many people encounter in pursuit of college. Over 70% of entering Capital students – most of them the first in their families to attend college – qualify for some form of financial aid. Gifts to the CCC Foundation are increasingly important to maintaining the access mission and to continuing Capital’s tradition as a stepping stone to academic achievement and professional careers for individuals who otherwise would not have the opportunity to go to college.
