With your help, our students can celebrate on graduation day!

Commencement 2018
Graduation is a very exciting time for our students and a milestone not to be forgotten. We know some of our students are not able to afford the price of a cap and gown and therefore do not walk across the stage to celebrate this huge academic accomplishment. The CRC Alumni Association and Office of Philanthropy have created the “Gowns for Grads” program to support students with free access to graduation caps and gowns. 
With your help, we can guarantee all of our students have the opportunity to celebrate their accomplishments on graduation day!
This program is to help alleviate some of the hardships of graduation expenses for our students who may not otherwise be able to participate in graduation after working so hard for a certificate or degree.  We appreciate all cap/gown* donations from CRC alumni as well as monetary donations. $40 donation will purchase one cap and gown and covers dry cleaning costs so the gown can be used more than once. If you have a cap and gown you would like to donate, please drop** it off at Cosumnes River College, 8401 Center Parkway, Sacramento 95823 at the Office of Philanthropy in Winn 109 or the Hawk Spot Food Pantry in T-108. Complete your donation by May 1, 2019 to impact a graduating student this year. 
Commencement is May 22, 2019 at 7:00 pm in the CRC Main Gym. We would love to have you attend commencement and celebrate with our current grads!

Thank you for your contribution to make graduation special for a CRC student!

*We can only accept donations of caps/gowns that are less than five years old and in good condition. 
**If you have a gown to donate but cannot deliver it, please contact Michele Steiner at 916-691-7491 or SteineM (at) crc [dot] losrios [dot] edu to make arrangements.
