The Sampson Community College Foundation is a registered 501(c)(3) non-profit that cultivates community support for SCC and seeks funding from the private sector to support the college mission. Gifts to the Foundation fund student scholarships and support staff and student programs. The Foundation also promotes the college though community outreach events throughout the year. Students are encouraged to apply for scholarships.
Your gifts to the Sampson Community College Foundation truly change lives. For the 2018-2019 academic year, over $85,000 was awarded through 100 different scholarships to more than 125 deserving students. These scholarships help local students, many of whom do not qualify for federal student aid. This money allows students to pay for tuition and books—which in many cases means not having to work two jobs, having extra money for child care, or being able to finish their degree sooner. Your gifts are not only helping in the short term, but are truly an investment in the people and future of Sampson County.
The Sampson Community College Foundation hosts several celebrations and fundraising events every year.
