About the PPCC Foundation

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 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!

Who We Serve

     The key focus at PPCC is to provide high quality educational opportunities to all with a focus on student success and community needs, including:

  • Occupational programs, including certificates, associate and bachelor degrees, for youth and adults in career and technical fields;
  • Two-year transfer educational programs to qualify students for admission to the junior year at other colleges and universities; and
  • A broad range of personal, career, and technical education for adults

Today, PPCC is the largest post-secondary educational institution in Colorado Springs and offers the most widely accessible and affordable education in the region. PPCC serves approximately 20,000 students annually throughout El Paso, Teller and Elbert Counties. That is possible only with the continuing support of the community, including you!


The mission of Pikes Peak Community College Foundation is to enhance opportunities for student success by providing financial support for student scholarships and selected programs and projects. The Foundation pursues its mission by supporting the College strategic plan and other programs and projects that are approved by the Board and endorsed by the College.
