Funding mechanism icon

Program funding

The first 26 months of the program is funded through a $750,000 grant from the California Community College State Chancellor’s Office. College of the Canyons was one of 14 community colleges out of 41 that applied for this grant.

  • For the following 24 months, the College of the Canyons Foundation has agreed to raise $250,000 per year for two years.
  • The keystone of this fundraising initiative will be through a matching gift campaign, where every contribution will be matched, dollar for dollar, up to $50,000, by the foundation. That means your donation will have double the impact!
