CNCC Foundation


You Can Make A Difference In The Life And Career Of A Student!


The Colorado Northwestern Community College (CNCC) Foundation was formed in 1979, for the purpose of expanding the college's resources through grant funding requests, corporate/individual solicitation activities, and special fundraising events.  The CNCC Foundation strives to ensure the college's financial stability by obtaining needed funds for necessary programs and for the purpose of offsetting the cost of educating our students through effective foundation involvement.


The Colorado Northwestern Community College Foundation is governed by a voluntary board of business and community leaders throughout the Northwest quadrant of the state. As a Foundation, our goal is to solicit and channel funds to benefit the Colorado Northwestern Community College community as a whole. Foundation support enables CNCC to:

  • Enhance Instructional Programs
  • Improve College Facilities
  • Offer Student Scholarships
  • Fund Special Projects that the State of Colorado, the Rangely Junior College District or the Board of Control can't fund
