Let’s Make Change Happen


Welcome to the new Community College of Aurora Foundation Newsletter!  The Board and Staff of the Foundation are excited to present a new look to go along with the many changes the Foundation has experienced. This year, the board’s focus is on fundraising for scholarships.  The Foundation has transferred control of all land and buildings to the college now that the bonds used to purchase them have been fulfilled. I joined the Board because I want to see the students at CCA get the kind of quality education that allows them to achieve their dreams – no matter what their dreams may be.
