Give to OCC

Why you should consider giving to the OCC Foundation

The OCC Foundation serves as the primary fundraising arm of the College and is a not-for-profit charitable organization. Since it was founded in 1980, the Foundation has helped more than 2,500 students realize their potential through higher education. The Foundation Leadership team manages more than 150 funds, and awarded more than $850,000 to students at Onondaga this past academic year. In addition to scholarship support, the Foundation raises funds for programs and projects that enrich the Onondaga experience and opens new opportunities for the campus community.

When you support the OCC Foundation, you are making a statement that you believe in the importance of a quality, affordable education for everyone. Your contribution directly impacts the lives of our students and plays an essential role in our ability to fulfill our mission. Students today are the architects, nurses, musicians, and educators of tomorrow. 

Please, give what you can.
