Make a meaningful charitable gift while you provide for an enduring tribute to a family member or other loved one. Name a scholarship, sponsor an event, name a building or room on the campus, as just some examples that are lasting tributes.

Donations of goods and services that are considered beneficial to the college are considered in-kind donations. Check with the College to see what needs we have that might meet with the services or products you might donate.

Gifts to the Wishing Well Fund will allow staff and faculty to apply for funding and mini-grants to develop and implement unique ideas through buying equipment, implementing technology, in and out of classroom learning experiences, and other items that are needed to best serve SCC students.

The SCC Student and Employee Support Fund is a program available to provide emergency financial assistance to staff and students of SCC who suffer sudden, non-recurring, unplanned economic hardship due to an emergency such as: an accident, illness, fire, child care, housing related assistance, textbooks, required uniform or equipment expenses related to course study and others as determined. Applications are kept in strictest confidence.

Food insecurity among SCC Students has been identified as one of the most growing concerns among our student population. That need has only become larger due to the effects of COVID and their ability to work and provide the food they need on a daily basis. Many students have to decide between tuition, fees and books over a proper diet. The Cupboard at SCC is there to anonymously help those students experiencing food insecurity.

Creating a scholarship or contributing to an existing scholarship at SCC will directly and significantly change the lives of students who otherwise might not be able to go to college.  Supporting scholarships is also a meaningful way to honor family, friends, beloved teachers, a special program or any other important influence in your life.  SCC students who receive a scholarship are twice as likely to graduate.
