The Cuyahoga Community College (Tri-C®) Foundation was chartered in 1973 as a 501(c)(3) charitable organization. The mission of the Tri-C Foundation is to create funding opportunities for scholarships and educational program development and enhancement at Cuyahoga Community College.

Thanks to continued financial support from business partners, corporations, foundations, governmental agencies, friends, Tri-C employees, alumni and philanthropic organizations throughout the area, the Tri-C Foundation provides scholarships to many outstanding students with financial need. The need is greater than ever for enhancing access to higher education for the many students in our community who, without some financial aid, cannot access or continue their education.

Both the Tri-C Foundation and the College work closely with the community to build strong partnerships and seek financial support for the development and enhancement of educational programs 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.
