Raising the Bar

Believe Achieve Receive

The Raising the BAR Fund will help close gaps not covered by other services and resources to ensure that students maintain their dignity, foster a “can-do” spirit, stay on their path, and fuel the momentum to not only dream it, but do it.

Many of our students are facing extraordinary and unexpected challenges such as:

          • Loss of employment
          • Increased healthcare costs
          • Inadequate food supplies

Your help is needed now more than ever!

Give to COC


The College of the Canyons (COC) Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit auxiliary organization formed to generate philanthropic support for College of the Canyons. The Foundation is governed by a Board of Directors who are an enthusiastic and committed group of volunteer business and community leaders who donate their time, resources and energy to positively impact educational access in the Santa Clarita Valley. The board's mission is to provide an affordable and accessible college education for all having the desire to succeed.

Like other educational institutions, our college needs charitable gifts to endow scholarships and to support educational programs and capital improvements, which can mean the difference between ordinary and extraordinary programs and services for student success. Through annual giving, special events and scholarship programs, the foundation provides the college with crucial private financial resources.

Contributions of cash, real estate, bequests and other legacy gifts enable the college to provide specialized educational programs and perform beyond the achievement level that tax dollars alone can support. Each year, the foundation grants funds to support college programs. It has granted as much as $2.9 million back to the college.

The Foundation encourages inquiries about the wide variety of college programs and opportunities supported through generous donations.
