In the age of all things digital, Coahoma Community College has launched an online giving platform, powered by Qgiv. The aim is to make giving from CCC alumni, family, and friends more accessible and convenient.

Qgiv offers user-friendly, easy-to-use services that will process charitable donations, event registrations, pledges, and more. Specifically, CCC’s platform will provide mobile giving, donations via social networks, and specialized support to the institution.

In 2005, Qgiv's founders set out to build a clear, easy way for any tax-exempt organization to accept donations and contributions online. Since then, the company has grown into a thriving organization that prides itself on fast, one-on-one customer service and easy-to-use features.

Charles Reid, executive director of the Coahoma Community College and Agricultural High School Foundation, is excited about the new initiative and hopes this will spearhead a new age of giving to CCC.

“Ms. LaShasa Griffin, assistant director of Student Engagement, and I have worked on other like services in the past and are elated with this new initiative. Donations mean a lot to Coahoma. We set the foundation up to aid with student scholarships, faculty and staff development, and to offer assistance to the college’s administration. Certain things that can’t be paid for through the regular budget, so we provide that additional assistance and support,” said Reid.

According to Reid, alumni support is crucial in the Foundation’s efforts and any and all generous gifts will benefit the college in varied and substantial ways.

“For the future, we want to get more alumni involved and gain more local support. Right now, we aren’t receiving the level of support we think we can,” Reid added. “We want our alumni to remember us as they go on to a four-year institution or the world of work. We hope to build our relationships with our alumni and local businesses.”

According to Qgiv’s website, the company was the first online donations processor to take their client's security seriously and become a Level 1 PCI Compliant provider. Qgiv touts the ability to store, process or transmit their donor's sensitive information, providing outstanding customer service, security, and support.

This level of support is what was a driving factor in Coahoma’s decision in utilizing the platform and service.

Individuals interested in giving to Coahoma can do so via the College website at www.coahomacc.edu/giving.
