Who We Are

The Pikes Peak Community College Foundation was formed in 1980 by a group of committed supporters of PPCC; the organization received its 501(c)3 status in 1981.

The task of the Foundation Board and Staff is vitally important – to raise awareness of the critical impact of PPCC on individuals, families and communities in the region AND to generate the resources required to further enrich PPCC’s academic programs, launch new initiatives and provide scholarships for tens of thousands of deserving students.

The staff of PPCC Foundation can assist you to determine the ways in which you can realize your philanthropic goals with a gift to support Pikes Peak Community College. Contact us at your convenience; we are here to help!
