Make an Impact with Reunion Giving

Reunions are a time to reconnect with friends, relive memories, and experience CC today. When you and classmates come together, you can also make an impact for CC students by participating in your class’s reunion class gift project.

Class gift projects are selected by the class volunteer reunion committees. Committee members discuss what topics and areas of the college their class valued most while at CC, as well as what is most meaningful and important to them now. The project is different for every class. Contribute to your class gift project at
