Giving Tuesday: The Value of Scholarship Giving @ Capital

“Growing up in inner city Hartford, the youngest of twelve children, college seemed out of reach. Capital Community College not only afforded me the opportunity to obtain a college education but also gave me my career in nursing….I applaud the community college concept and wanted to give back to the college that once helped me….”

Madelaine (Boucher) Binner , Class of ’77

Through the generosity of individuals, companies and foundations Capital Community College is creating more college access and supporting programs for academic success at Hartford’s community college.

Contributions above and beyond operating budgets provide the margin necessary for new scholarships, tutoring, advising and resources for teaching and learning.

Capital, with a mission to provide residents CCC_Grad_malesolowith a “quality, affordable education”, lowers the cost roadblock that so many people encounter in pursuit of college. Students are getting an education here that is vital to a rewarding job, career and life.

In 2015, it’ll take $143 tuition to pay for one credit hour, $429 for one course and $1,716 for a semester of full-time study. Contributions to Capital, no matter the amount, make a “quality and affordable education” within reach of individuals who otherwise could not pursue college.

Contributions are welcome on Giving Tuesday and throughout the year.  Gifts may be made online through the College Foundation’s Network For Good Giving Page.

And many thanks to the College’s donors, sponsors and friends for your support throughout 2014.

For giving, alumni and volunteer opportunities and information contact: Capital Community College Foundation, 950 Main Street, Hartford, CT 06103. Telephone: 860-906-5102.
