;What the Sampson Community College Foundation is about...

The Foundation of Sampson Community College is a nonprofit organization established by the Board of Trustees in September 1986. The Foundation is organized to receive gifts of money or property to support the educational programs of the College. During its brief history, the Sampson Community College Foundation has established itself as a leader among two year community college foundations. Its capacity for service has been strengthened by contributions from individuals, businesses, industries, and civic organizations.

The Foundation is governed by a Board of Directors consisting of community leaders from across Sampson County who serve without pay, and who are elected to serve on a rotating basis.

The Foundation Directors meet on a quarterly basis to review and plan the operations of the Foundation. The Board of Directors serve through a committee structure, and the Board as a whole manages the gifts and investments of funds contributed to the Sampson Community College Foundation.
