Cuyahoga Community College Foundation and Alumni Relations

The mission of the Cuyahoga Community College (Tri-C®) Foundation is to provide resources for advancing student success at Cuyahoga Community College and to transform the lives of those Tri-C serves.

We are committed to supporting academic excellence, innovation, diversity, integrity, and achievement of individual and institutional goals. We are dedicated to instilling trust, respect, and confidence among donors, students, alumni, colleagues and the community and strives to ensure the College has the resources needed to help every student learn, thrive and succeed and to create a prosperous community for all.

The partnership and support of businesses, corporations, foundations, governmental agencies, friends, Tri-C employees, alumni and philanthropic organizations throughout the region  help to provide scholarships to more than 2,500 students annually. The need is greater than ever for enhancing access to, and completion of, higher education for the many students in our community who, without some financial aid, cannot earn a degree or credential.

The Tri-C Foundation and the College work closely with the community to build strong partnerships and secure financial support for the development and enhancement of educational programs and student scholarships, in response to workforce and student needs.

For more than 50 years, investments in Tri-C have paid immense dividends. Tri-C is the largest community college in Ohio, serving more than 55,000 students each year on its campuses, at multiple off-campus sites and through online learning.
