CCSF chancellor donates raise to help close funding gap 

City College of San Francisco’s chancellor Don Griffin just completed his two years on the job with rave reviews from the school’s governing board.

But Griffin opted forego his contractual 6 percent raise and instead donate what would’ve added to his estimated $287,000 salary to the school’s “Save the Classes Project.”

Like all government and educational entities, California’s community colleges are facing massive cuts in funding. Last school year, City College trimmed $18 million from its $193 million budget because of state cuts. This year the college is expected to cut $12 million.

Griffin announced he would donate the pay raise in July. At the governing board’s July 29 meeting, trustees approved the donation.
