Educational Foundation

  • Since its beginning, the Southeast Community College Educational Foundation has supported the vitality and growth of SCC to benefit students, staff and the communities the College serves through the development and wise use of financial resources.

    The student scholarship program has always been the primary objective guiding the Foundation’s many activities. Initiated in 1978, the scholarship program provided $1,000 for each of SCC’s three campuses that first year. Donor generosity, sound planning and wise investments have fostered tremendous growth from those humble beginnings. Last year over $1.5 million in scholarship support was awarded to SCC students.

    Foundation donors, many of whom are SCC alumni, have made generous contributions to the scholarship programs for our students. Without their help, many students would not have been able to realize their dreams of a college education.

    SCC's mission is to provide opportunities for growth and development to all students, no matter what their educational goals. The SCC Educational Foundation’s mission is to offer the financial support necessary to help students who want to reach those goals. Contributions make all the difference to many deserving students.

    Thank you for supporting the students, their education and the growth and vitality of SCC!
