Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Colorado in general and our service areas specifically have an attainment gap for higher education credentials. Our area employers note that many of the workers coming in are not workforce ready and require further training. The CNCC Foundation provides funding for scholarships to ensure that no one who would like to obtain post-secondary education is unable to do so due to financial issues. We also ensure that the college has the funds to quickly offer programs to meet the workforce needs of area employers. Program funds support keeping training equipment and technology up-to-date, so we are training workforce-ready employees and students fully prepared for transfer to their next level of education.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

The mission of Colorado Northwestern Community College is to enhance people's lives through education.
-Provide accessible, affordable, quality education in safe, rural, small-town environments
-Prepare our students to achieve their educational, workplace, and personal goals
-Offer educational programs that respond to evolving workforce environments, to include workforce training, occupational certificates, and Associate of Applied Science and Bachelor of Applied Science degrees
-Offer excellent, two-year general education transfer degrees

The Foundation ensures that CNCC has the funds to meet this mission and that our donors feel respected and appreciated and know their impact on students and programs.

The CNCC Foundation works with donors and community partners to develop sustainable funds to meet the needs of students and employers when traditional funding sources are not available. Our goal is to maintain our current donors by keeping them feeling appreciated and connected with their impact.

The CNCC Foundation has a strong history of support from the communities it serves and alumni from the college. Even with an inconsistent leadership format, the Foundation has consistently offered students needed scholarship funds and provided for some of the program and capital building/remodeling needs for the college. As we have developed a strong, long-term leadership structure, our donors and supporters have increased their trust in the vision and values of CNCC.

The Foundation gave out over $140,000 in scholarships in the past fiscal year. Grant funds have been received to help develop programs, meet some new technology and equipment needs, and capital funds have been raised for some renovation projects. We would like to see the Foundation's small endowment grow to ensure fiscal stability into the future. We would like to see improved technology infrastructure on the Rangely campus and to see our cybersecurity program (in development) thrive on the Craig campus and eventually, be offered through the Rangely campus as well.
