The Foundation for Maine’s Community Colleges was created to support the state’s community colleges at a time when state funding was declining. CCS was retained to develop a campaign with an initial goal of $10 million, and which raised $23 million for endowment, programmatic, and capital needs.

The Challenge

The Foundation for Maine’s Community College was created in 2009 to support the seven community colleges throughout the state. The foundation was focused on strengthening student support services, increasing access to higher education, and updating instructional tools and resources at a time when state funding as a portion of the college's budgets had declined.

The Solution

CCS was retained to develop a campaign plan and implement activities to raise funds for endowment, programmatic, and capital needs.

The Impact

The foundation raised $23 million to invest in the enduring future of Maine by providing an excellent and affordable education to students throughout the state.
