The CCRI Foundation  was established in 1979, and for over 40 years has been vital to helping our students achieve their academic and professional goals through scholarships, book awards, and emergency funding. Today, philanthropic partners become critical to our growing community that make up 20,000 enrolled students and nearly 80,000 alumni.

The mission of the CCRI Foundation is to secure monies for the Community College of Rhode Island through dynamic campaigns and public awareness of the College’s value to the community.
