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.

Tri-C is a beacon of hope for Cleveland. With the continued support of business partners, corporations, organizations, friends and alumni, the Tri-C Foundation provides critical scholarship support to outstanding students with financial need, along with funding for program development and enhancement to ensure educational excellence. During the 2017-2018 academic year, a record total of $3.2 million in scholarships awards were made to more than 2,800 Tri-C students.

The Tri-C Foundation has established three strategic priorities to advance futures and transform the region:

Student Experience: Improve attainment by increasing program funding to drive student success.

Workforce including health care, IT and manufacturing: Ensure more students have the resources to enter and succeed in workforce training programs that lead to in-demand jobs in our region.

Affordability: increase access and reduce costs for students through scholarship support and cost efficiencies.

There is no more important organization than Tri-C to uplift individuals and create economic growth for Northeast Ohio. An investment in the Tri-C Foundation is an investment in our students and an investment in our region.
