Think Globally, Act Locally: Capital Community College Foundation Joins “Giving Tuesday Now” May 5th

On Tuesday, May 5th Capital Community College (CCC) Foundation joins a global generosity movement started in 2012.

Giving Tuesday — a day set aside in December each year to encourage philanthropy and acts of kindness,  is happening now in response to the COVID-19 public health and economic crisis hitting every community globally and locally.

For community college students financial and personal burdens are growing during the pandemic. While distance learning continues, new hardships will confront students in the days and weeks ahead.

At Capital Community College donations– no matter the amount – support a mission of educational access and academic success for students who face financial and personal challenges in getting to and graduating from college without debt.

Donate Now

  • $166 supports a credit hour of study ($1,992 full time tuition per semester)
  • $286 covers fees and transportation per student each semester
  • $700 meets the costs of textbooks and learning materials
  • $50-$750 can provide a Capital Cares microgrant to address hardships and emergencies.

Where Does My Gift Go?

100% of gifts go where donors want.  Capital relies on contributions to the Annual Fund to provide a critical margin necessary for new scholarships, tutoring, advising and resources for teaching and learning.  Friends may donate securely online or print a Gift Reply Form and return to CCC Foundation, 950 Main Street, Hartford, CT 06103.

Think Globally. Act Locally

  • Support healthcare workers by donating supplies, advocating for them, and staying home.
  • Give to the organizations that you love most – no amount is too little and nonprofits need our support, including the Capital Community College Foundation
  • Help out small businesses by buying gift cards or writing an online review.
  • Combat loneliness by reaching out to a neighbor, relative, seniors or veterans.
