Campus Giving

All SPSCC employees can participate in the Campus Cares Employee Giving Campaign. By donating to support scholarships, college programs, and emergency assistance we all contribute to student success at SPSCC.

Electra and Percy

Thank you to all of our campus colleagues for all the ways you support student success at SPSCC every day! 

You Make a Difference

Campus Cares is SPSCC's employee giving campaign. The campaign raises awareness about student needs and creates opportunities for you to further support students by donating to scholarships, programs, grants, and emergency assistance.

Campus Cares is organized and facilitated each year through a partnership between the SPSCC Foundation and the Campus Cares Street Team. Learn about the campaign through a series of social media and email communications as well as in-person, campus-wide events that celebrate employee support for student success at SPSCC.
