The Annual “Seaside Splash” Fundraiser debuted in 2005 and has grown to become the premier fundraising event for the KCC Foundation. Each year, our supporters enjoy cocktails and hors d'oeuvres served on our beautiful beach patio and dinner and dancing held in the magnificent KCC Rotunda, surrounded by beautiful ocean views.  Funds raised from Seaside Splash are used to support the Foundation as it strives to advance the college’s mission of providing high quality education and continuous improvement in all areas related to student learning including faculty, instructional programs, student services, administrative and support staff, and the campus environment. 

On Thursday, June 23rd, we held Kingsborough Community College’s 11th Annual Seaside Splash Fundraiser…Seaside Splash Clambake Bash. 
Over three hundred guests attended this year’s fundraiser where many of the College’s community supporters and donors, Foundation Board trustees, KCC faculty, staff and student-scholars celebrated Kingsborough’s commitment to providing an affordable, high-quality and transformational education. 
We are already planning for the 12th Annual Seaside Splash, and we look forward to seeing you there!

#KCC Spirit Day (formerly known as KCC Walk-A-Thon)

#KCC Spirit Day brings the entire KCC community—including faculty, staff, alumni, retirees, students, family and friends—together to raise funds for student scholarships. This day is held in conjunction with #CUNYTUESDAY; internationally, the day is known as #GivingTuesday, a movement that celebrates and supports philanthropic giving on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving, Black Friday and Cyber Monday.

At Kingsborough, #KCC Spirit Day involves the administrative and faculty offices fundraising during the month of November through raffles and donations. The day culminates with a campus-wide Scavenger Hunt, photos, games, music, snacks, prizes and more! The funds raised support student scholarships to help students overcome the financial obstacles that stand in the way of their dreams.

Faculty Achievements Recognition Ceremony

At the annual Faculty Recognition Ceremony, Kingsborough faculty and staff are recognized for their achievements in the areas of grants received, publications and presentations, works of art or literature produced, and more.  The recent 6th annual celebration included a college-wide recognition of faculty and staff’s work and a retrospective exhibit of faculty and staff over the past 50 years.
