About Us

Founded in 1935, City College of San Francisco (CCSF) is among the oldest and largest community colleges, enrolling roughly 100,000 students each year. CCSF delivers over 4,700 courses at 12 campuses and nearly 200 other instructional sites citywide. The College's programmatic breadth and variety, combined with its image and prominence in the city's ethnic neighborhoods and the downtown business district, result in the highest market penetration of any community college in the country.

Within the College, the Division of Institutional Advancement is responsible for College planning, institutional research, grants and resource development, program review, annual giving, major gifts, alumni development, scholarships, planned and deferred giving, corporate and foundation giving, special fundraising campaigns, and the CCSF Foundation, a 501(c)3 organization. The Foundation is responsible for providing scholarships to students in the form of grants and awards; building and implementing endowment funds in support of student needs and College programs; enlisting continuing financial support for the College within the community; and supporting the institutional advancement activities at CCSF. The primary purpose of the Division of Institutional Advancement and the Foundation is to raise funds to support the College’s strategic priorities.
