Support JCCC with Your Financial Contributions

The JCCC Foundation welcomes your gifts and contributions. We can allocate your gifts across a variety of options and interests, from establishing or supporting a scholarship for JCCC students to personal endowments, memorial gifts and more.

The Foundation can use your gift to benefit students or an area of the College immediately, or we can place your gift in an endowment to work in perpetuity for your chosen purpose.

Giving options include:

You may make a donation to an existing scholarship or establish a new scholarship. The Foundation will work with you to ensure your gift benefits our students.

If you're a student seeking a scholarship, apply for a scholarship on the College website.

As a member, you support a specific JCCC program and gain access to key benefits. JCCC support memberships include:

  • Friends with Taste® — Support the College's world-renowned programs in hospitality and culinary education and receive invitations to exclusive dinners and tours, along with other exciting benefits.
  • Friend of the Carlsen Center — Friends help JCCC bring nationally known, high-quality music, dance and theatrical performances to the Carlsen Center.
  • Member of the Nerman Museum of Contemporary Art — Support one of the region's most important venues for cutting-edge art and gain attractive benefits that enhance your museum experience.

JCCC wants our students to succeed at all levels — and when we learned that there were students on campus distracted by hunger and food insecurity, we had to respond.

So we established Cavalier MealShare, a discreet meal assistance program that provides qualified students with Dining Dollars good at all on-campus food venues, guaranteeing that these students can get a healthy, high-quality meal when they're on campus. Learn more about the program and how you can support it.

You may establish a named endowment in honor of your family or place of business. Regular endowments start with a first gift of $10,000. As a part of the personalized endowment process, you may direct the annual proceeds to a need of the College that best fits your interest.

Relatives and friends often remember loved ones with contributions to memorial funds. This is particularly appropriate as a way to remember people who have been associated with the College.

You may make a special gift to the Foundation to commemorate a special event in your life or the life of someone else. This is a thoughtful way of noting a special occasion and remembering the needs of the College at the same time.

All of the Foundation's special events and campaigns offer individual and corporate sponsorship opportunities. Each sponsorship offers a variety of ways that underwriters and donors can be recognized.

Estate gifts are an excellent opportunity for you to remember the College in your will. There are a variety of estate-planning opportunities that range from bequests to life-income gifts.
