What We Do

We award over $1 million each year to support student scholarships, academic support, emergency needs, college readiness initiatives, and career success. We do this via annual fundraising through annual giving, one-time donations, events, major gifts, and other philanthropic support provided by individuals like you, as well as organizations.

Our Mission

The Foundation's mission is to raise, administer and invest funds on behalf of Onondaga Community College and its students. We are governed by a 25-member volunteer Board of Directors, representing business, industry, community, and the OCC student body. We've been pursuing this mission since 1980.
