  • Stay Connected

    IMG_0179Just because you’ve retired from Cuyamaca, Grossmont or the District doesn’t mean you’ve left the family. We created the Retiree Network to keep you connected. There is no cost to join the Retiree Network.

    Invitations to Social Events
    We organize activities designed to promote laughter and community spirit. Social events happen throughout the year and include breakfasts, culinary arts events, theatre performances, an annual homecoming celebration, a holiday party, and more!

    Foundation for Grossmont and Cuyamaca Colleges

    About us

    A college is more than buildings and laboratories. It’s about people filled with energy, passion and exciting ideas.

    Our students come to us full of possibility. Grossmont and Cuyamaca Colleges are where those possibilities can be realized.

    The Foundation for Grossmont & Cuyamaca Colleges is the philanthropic partner for East County’s two academic jewels. It’s a place for alumni, faculty, staff, students, retirees and the community to come together to support our students. The money we raise enhances student learning and helps train our future workforce, provides cultural enrichment for the community, and makes East County a better place to live and work.


    The Foundation for Grossmont & Cuyamaca Colleges raises awareness and financial resources for our two colleges and the students we serve.


    We make dreams possible.


    We value:

    • The power of higher education
    • Making a difference in our community
    • Responsible stewardship
    • Accountability to our community
    • Diverse backgrounds and ideas
    • Tangible outcomes
    • The transformative power of philanthropy
