Our Impact

Consider the nurse who tends to your loved on recovering from sickness or surgery.  The technician who keeps your car or boat motor running as good as new.  The EMT and Fireman that save lives every day without hesitation.  

Think about the faculty member who helps foster a student's passion for science and encourges him or her to aim for a medical degree.  The student government association president or honor society association president who develops leadership skills for life. Or the individual who just lost their job, discovers opportunities he/she never thought possible.  

CCC people make our community a better place. 

Higher education, builds better communities.  When you give to the CCC Foundation, you give to your community.  Whether your gift funds student scholarships, strengthens programs, enhances facilities or addresses other needs - every dollar donated to the CCC Foundation is a commitment to a better future for the community of Carteret County.

Computer Technology Training for the Unemployed, funds to offset cost for students to obtain training essential for the workplace.  This project will fund the training materials that students will borrow.  Once the student completes the training, they will return the materials to us so that we can provide training to more students in similar circumstances. 

The CCC Foundation engages individuals and organizations to support a variety of faculty and staff programs, ranging from funding educational summer camps for local high school students to acquiring program equipment to allow us to stay current in today's professional setting. 

The Foundation secures private support for special initiatives designed to connect CCC with the Carteret County and surrounding counties communities.  We offer a $10,000 each year in mini-grant opportunities to faculty and staff that promote innovation.  The Foundation also provides funding for our Veterans Student Success Center which serves our veteran student population and their families.
