Providing an affordable education for SCC students is at the heart of the SCC Educational
Foundation. In 1978, the foundation started the scholarship program with each of our three
campuses receiving $1,000 for first year scholarships. Over 40 years later, our Foundation
awards SCC students over $2 million in scholarship support.
Many of our scholarship donors are SCC alumni paying it forward. Without their generous
support, many of our students would not be able to realize their dream of being a college
graduate in a successful career. Each gift to the Scholarship Fund represents a level of
confidence in SCC’s tradition of providing a high-quality education to our future workforce.

The three ways your donations will have the greatest impact on students are through scholarships, the
food pantry and emergency fund.
The Southeast Community College Food Pantry aims to reduce the impact food insecurity has on the
academic success of our students by providing a variety of non-perishable food items and basic
necessities to students and their families.
There are currently four food pantries across the College: the Beatrice Campus, the Lincoln Campus at
8800 O St., Education Square at 1111 O St., and the Milford Campus. Each location provides different
options to meet the short-term needs of students and are reliant on donor support for inventory.
The Student Emergency Fund was created to support SCC students and their families who are, or
could soon be, in need of emergency funds as a result of the global COVID-19 health crisis. Your
donation will allow students to continue their education while struggling with the following challenges:
SCC is in a transformational period guided by its 2020-2024 Strategic Plan. One of these phases involves
increasing the College’s capacity to produce a skilled workforce by ensuring our students have access to
state-of-the-art facilities. These are the current projects capital projects underway at SCC.
This new facility will support SCC’s ag and ag-related programs. As of the start of the 2021
Fall Semester, design and architectural plans were being finalized.
This project involves construction of a 25,672 square-foot, two-story addition and renovation
of 80,038 square feet of internal spaces, with 5,055 square feet of mechanical mezzanine. It
addresses vital fire and life safety needs through: fire suppression that includes
sprinkling the current gymnasium, appropriate firewall separations; appropriate egress all
in adherence to current fire and life safety code. While the College addresses these needs,
it is using the opportunity to modernize, expand and organize the spaces to improve access
for students to these vital academic support needs.
Renovating Nebraska Hall allows us to
