Foundation

The Contra Costa Association of Realtors® (CCAR) Scholarship Foundation provides college scholarship grants to qualifying students in the fields of marketing, communication, finance, business and real estate. Our commitment to support higher education is the heart of the Contra Costa Association of Realtors®' desire to make a difference! In the last five years alone, the Foundation has awarded nearly $250,000 in college grants to deserving students whose families reside in central Contra Costa County. The CCAR Scholarship Foundation was formed in 1967 and is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization. It is administered by a governing board of fourteen Trustees; officers include a president, vice-president, treasurer and secretary.

The Foundation receives its financial support directly from Realtors®, industry Affiliate members and friends of the Contra Costa Association of Realtors®. If you are a scholarship candidate, a parent of a prospective student or a counselor from an accredited college or university, we welcome you to our Foundation. If you are a Realtor®, industry Affiliate or future contributor to our organization, we invite you to be a 'partner in our success', to be a member of the CCAR Scholarship Foundation family and to share in the incredibly gratifying experience of enabling higher education.
