JCC Foundation

The Jefferson Community College Foundation, Inc. is a nonprofit charitable, educational organization whose purpose is to raise, manage and distribute funds to assist students and to enrich and enhance the educational opportunities provided by Jefferson Community College.  The Foundation was created in 1979 through the merger of two organizations started when the College was founded in the early 1960’s.

For more than thirty-five years, the Foundation has been doing exactly that.  Working hand-in-hand with our dedicated community, the Foundation continues to advance our mission to provide financial assistance to students, to enhance and strengthen our teaching and learning environment, and to encourage public support of the College.

The JCC Foundation Board of Directors consist of business and community leaders who are committed to advancing and strengthening the educational opportunities that Jefferson provides to our region.  Among those board members are the Jefferson Community College President, two representatives from the College Staff and representative from the College Board of Trustees, who along with Foundation staff provide the link between the College and the Foundation.

The Foundation actively seeks donations from individuals and businesses through a variety of methods and fundraising activities and events in support of our mission.

There are numerous ways to show your support of the Foundation, including making a donation, creating a scholarship and attending Foundation and Alumni events.

Please contact the Jefferson Community College Foundation with any questions or for additional details on how to show your support of local, quality, affordable education.
