Created in 1988, the California Conservation Corps Foundation (CCCF) is a non-profit public benefit 501 (c) (3) organization that supports the programs and corpsmembers of the California Conservation Corps (CCC) through philanthropy. The mission of CCCF is to advance the education, training, leadership development, personal growth and career opportunities of the corpsmembers while protecting and enhancing California's natural resources. The CCCF has developed a program called the "Friends of the CCC" to reach out to CCC Alumni, individuals and corporations and engage them in fulfilling this mission.
