  4. Campus Funds benefit a particular campus and are allocated at the discretion of the Campus Dean and Vice President for Instruction.
  5. Program Funds support particular programs at the discretion of the Program Chair with the approval of the Campus Dean and Vice President for Instruction.

Matching Gifts
Numerous corporations will match employees’ charitable contributions by often doubling the amount of the original gift. Some companies will match gifts made by retired employees. Click here to learn if your company or your spouse’s employer has a matching gift policy. Matching gifts are counted with your donation and can place you in a higher giving level.

Honor and Memorial Gifts
The Family Campaign provides the opportunity to make a gift in honor or in memory of others. If requested, a notice of your gift is sent to the honoree or family members of your choice. You may also choose to designate your gift to an existing scholarship fund established by, in honor of, or in memory of CPCC employees or family members.
