Cleveland Community College Foundation - Cleveland Community College, Shelby, NC

About the CCC Foundation

The CCC Foundation was established in 1983 as a not for profit corporation to ensure quality education and financial stability for CCC. The first campaign, Make a Difference, was launched in 1998 and provided funds to support scholarships and technology. Our Economy. Our College. Our Community. A capital campaign was launched in 2003 and continues to thrive. This highly successful, multi-million dollar effort has so far expanded the footprint of CCC in both physical assets (buildings, trainers, etc.) and training options. It has also connected economic development efforts of Cleveland County to workforce training taking place at CCC.
