The Contra Costa Association of Realtors® (CCAR) Scholarship Foundation provides college scholarship grants to qualifying students. 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 Contra Costa County. The CCAR Scholarship Foundation was formed in 1967 and is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization.
