Keep The Legacy Alive

Since its inception in 2005, as a department of Associated Students, the Cesar E. Chavez Community Action Center has been exclusively funded from the contributions of students at San Jose State University. Now, to better serve the San Jose community, projected growth requires that 50% of the financial resources necessary to maintain and extend the community service work, that is the mission of the CCCAC, come from individual contributors, corporations and foundations.   A financial donation allows SJSU students to...
  • supplement their education with direct service to the San Jose community
  • tutor, mentor, teach and inspire children
  • renovate housing developments
  • sort and salvage food and clothing for low income families
  • lead hundreds of students in service
  • develop service programs and curriculum
  • obtain valuable skills and experience that adds to their personal and professional development.

What a dollar is worth to the CCCAC:

$25   Prepare and train a SJSU student to positively impact their community
$250   Underwrites student led events concerning social justice issues
$500   Send an SJSU student to on a local Alternative Spring Break trip
$1,000   A service scholarship to recognize a student’s exceptional contributions to their community
$2,500   Support the addition of 20 one-on-one mentoring relationships between SJSU students and students at Peter Burnett Academy and Hoover Middle School.
$5,000   Fully compensate a student coordinator for a full year.
$10,000   Develop and support a new CCCAC signature program
In addition to volunteering, a way to help the communities, non-profit agencies and schools that the CCCAC serves is  through a financial donation to the Cesar E. Chavez Community Action Center.
