Organizations We Support

We make grants to local nonprofit organizations focused on education, food and emergency services, eldercare, the arts, and the environment and parks. Since the three schools cover all administrative expenses, 100% of funds raised are distributed through grants. 

To be eligible for a CCS grant, your nonprofit organization must be located and offer services within one or more of the neighborhoods surrounding the University.

With your help, CCS has awarded grants to 55 local nonprofit organizations in 2016.

Our sincerest thanks to all donors to CCS' 69th Annual Campaign.
