Please Become an individual or corporate Sponsor,

or for our classified senates and their districts, become a Supporting Member of 4CS.



The California Community Colleges Classified Senate (4CS) is an all volunteer, non-profit Section 501(c)(3), public benefit organization, and receives no direct funding from the state. It is through our Supporting Membership and Sponsorship programs that we can better serve the people of California through our work with Community College System of California and our Senate membership.

In order to appropriately acknowledge your support, we have established a variety of annual funding categories and financial participation levels, one of which may be right for you. All of these categories and levels will provide financial support for 4CS and demonstrate an overall endorsement of the 4CS Mission by its members and supporters. The table below lists the minimum funding levels to qualify for each type of support and supporting membership categories.

Please take a moment to view our current "Sponsors and Supporting Members" page. Thank you for your support.
