Why Give?

Support Our Mission

CCS develops human potential through quality, relevant and affordable learning opportunities that result in improved social and economic well-being for our students and our state.

Benefits of Giving

A gift plan can provide you substantial tax benefits, especially when you give stock or real estate. Depending on your situation, you may save income taxes, capital gains taxes, probate expenses, and estate taxes.

Daniel P Jenkins Society

Colonel Daniel P. Jenkins was one of our region’s greatest philanthropists. Before he moved to Spokane in 1880, Col. Jenkins was a Civil War hero, a lawyer in Ohio and an acquaintance of Abraham Lincoln. He homesteaded 157 acres on the northside of the Spokane River and built the first college in town, Spokane College, located in what is now Kendall Yards.
