Advocate and Give

Why give to OCC?

Onondaga Community College serves as a gateway for EVERYONE, regardless of background or circumstance. Your involvement in our Week of Giving directly impacts the lives of our students and the vitality of our community. We invite you to join us during our Week of Giving from April 15th – 19th. Your contribution isn't just a donation; it's an investment in the future of our students and your community!

The benefits extend far beyond our students. For every $1 of support from state and local governments, taxpayers see a remarkable return of $4 on their investments. That's right—every contribution to OCC is an investment in our community, yielding returns that benefit us all.
