our value

  • "The Network’s benchmarking resources allowed us to better tell our story to our Foundation Board and District Board of Trustees. Network members and staff are helpful and resourceful.”

    Marcia Burg, State Center Community College District Foundation
  • We all need and crave the kind of quality and trustworthy professional support that the Network provides. Having individuals to call on and learn from is priceless in a field like ours. I have been able to listen, learn and share and have been privileged to say that I am better for it.

    Christina R. Romero, M.A., Executive Director, Office of College Advancement, Santa Ana College
  • The Network fosters a sense of comradery among fundraising professionals serving California Community Colleges. Our partnership with CASE has been tremendously positive. The annual conference brings together colleagues from around the country and has resulted in a very high quality professional development experience. It is empowering and re-assuring to meet with each other because, while all of our campuses are often very different, we face many of the same professional challenges.
