At CCS Fundraising, we know that access to education is the key to building a better and brighter future for generations to come. For the past several decades, we have had the privilege of partnering with hundreds of universities, colleges, community colleges, HBCUs, technical institutes, professional schools, and other institutions dedicated to achieving this goal and making this a reality for millions of students worldwide.

Our experts work closely with advancement leaders and their teams to plan and implement successful fundraising programs to support the people, places, and programming that are central to the higher education mission. We have helped our partners raise funds for endowments, scholarships, programs and departments, new capital projects, student and faculty research, and so much more.

CCS has deep expertise in all facets of the higher education fundraising experience, including managing campaigns ranging from $1 million to $3 billion, assessing advancement team operations, strengthening fundraising effectiveness, creating connectivity across matrixed and complex institutions, and developing compelling messages that inspire.

We are trusted partners to advancement leaders across the sector as they realize ambitious visions for educating generations to come.

We hired CCS because of its proven track record, and we were very pleased with the results of the partnership. CCS staff were very detail-oriented, and we benefited from their insight, experience, and expertise. I would recommend CCS to other potential clients without reservation.
