Support from our alumni is crucial to the success of CCS, its programs, and its students.

As an alum, you understand the challenge facing the CCS students of today – both in and out of the classroom. Your gift to the CCS Annual Fund or Alumni Scholarship Endowment will help the next generation of CCS graduates worry less about tuition, books, and materials, and help empower them as the future creative leaders of our communities.

Alumni Scholarship Endowment

The Alumni Scholarship Endowment was established in 1983 with a generous gift by two alumni who met while attending the same course at CCS and were later married. The couple later provided additional funds to match contributions to the fund by other alumni. Today, the endowment provides more than $14,000 each academic year to students across all disciplines. Your gift will be added directly to the endowment’s principal balance and continue to contribute to scholarships for talented CCS students for years to come.

Other Ways to Give

The Gift of Art

Give the gift of artwork by donating your work to the Detroit International Wine Auction (DIWA). The alumni art auction has been a key component to the success of DIWA for many years. Alumni artists are invited to participate annually in this scholarship fundraising event that is a fixture in Southeast Michigan’s business and social calendar.

CCS Alumni Exhibition

A CCS Alumni Exhibition is an annual juried exhibition of work by CCS alumni from across the country. Presented by the CCS Alumni Council, the exhibition includes works in all media installed in CCS’s beautiful Valade Family Gallery, and runs concurrently with the annual CCS Student Exhibition. The annual call for entries is released every year in January. Update your contact information to be sure to receive the invitation to submit your work.
