The Colorado Mountain College Foundation builds sustainable community support for the needs and strategic priorities of Colorado Mountain College and its students.

Maintaining Excellence

A thriving community college is the great key to unlocking a vibrant economy and prosperous region. In order to maintain the positive ripples of success, Colorado Mountain College must continue to reflect the priorities and values of our communities, with innovation and leadership being most critical. These goals require resources that go beyond the support provided by the College's daily operations.

How can you help?

We look forward to partnering with you as we all continue to change the lives of students and our communities!
