Established as a 501(c)3 not-for-profit charitable organization in 1967, the College of DuPage Foundation raises monetary and in-kind gifts to increase access to education and to enhance cultural opportunities for the surrounding community. Thanks to Foundation supporters and friends, the Foundation has invested millions of dollars in student scholarships, expansion and enrichment of programs, and other education essentials.
At COD, students find world-class instruction at a reasonable price. Even so, many students can't afford to access the incredible value COD has to offer. With the help of partners from the community, the Foundation is helping students to realize the value of a lifetime.

Celebrating Cleve Carney
"One of the things I learned from Cleve was a sense of community. Instead of just stacking up the money, Cleve was one of those guys who believed when you get to the top of the hill, you hold a hand out and pull the next guy up." - Tony Fitzpatrick, friend and artist
