With your help, students can celebrate on graduation day!

CRC Students wearing caps and gowns

Make a Contribution to Gowns for Grads today!

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. A $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
Office of Philanthropy in Winn 109 or
Hawk Spot Food Pantry in T-108.
8401 Center Parkway
Sacramento 95823 

Make a Donation

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 via email or call (916) 691-7491 to make arrangements.
