The Century College Foundation
The Century College Foundation is a private 501(c)(3) organization that serves as the philanthropic arm of Century College. Each year, our generous benefactors make gifts to support our mission to develop the vitality and prosperity of our students, college, and community to succeed in a changing world.
The Century College Foundation is proud to provide support to our students in a variety of ways, from scholarships for tuition and books to one-time emergency grants through the Acts of Kindness program.
Donations to the Century College Foundation are vitally important in this challenging economy. That’s why we are turning to individuals, corporations, and foundations for help in maintaining the quality of student learning and making the dream of a college education affordable to all students.
