At the Community Colleges of Spokane's Division of Institutional Advancement — made up of the CCS Foundation and the Marketing and Public Relations Office — we work together to help CCS make a transformational impact on the lives of our students and to tell the stories of those successes so that others also may decide to seek transformation through our educational programs. We raise money for student scholarships, program development and institutional support, and we share our program offerings and success stories through online and print publications, social media, video production and advertising and marketing campaigns.

Marketing and Public Relations

The Marketing and Public Relations Office is committed to chronicling what makes Spokane Community College and Spokane Falls Community College remarkable.

Our team of storytellers and designers help students, faculty and staff share their stories of success and accomplishments through high-quality communications pieces across multiple platforms, including online and print, video, social media and advertising.

Hello, media

The Marketing and Public Relations team understands journalists are often working under a tight deadline and need information quickly. Our office can assist in connecting with college leadership, including faculty, staff and experts. Contact Carolyn Casey, Chief Institutional Advancement and External Affairs Officer, or Jeff Bunch, Communications Director, to request interviews.

CCS Foundation

Supporting students for over 40 years with scholarships and assistance

Since 1972, the CCS Foundation has been working with CCS to improve educational access for students and to enhance programs at both SCC and SFCC. In the past five years, the Foundation has awarded $2.1 million in scholarships to more than 2,500 students. The Foundation also has helped more than 10,000 students with smaller awards and emergency funds.

The need continues to grow: in the last three years the number of applications for Foundation assistance has tripled. When you donate to the CCS Foundation, you have a direct impact on the strength and future of our community — you help deserving students go to and stay in school.
