Foundation Purpose


Foundation Purpose

Since our founding in 1971, Stanly Community College (SCC) has provided educational and career training opportunities to thousands of people across the region. Today, SCC serves over 9,000 students annually and has become a beacon of hope and change for countless individuals.

To ensure that the College can continue this tradition of serving as an educational resource, the Foundation strives to meet and address the current and anticipated needs of the College and our students.

When you make a gift to the Foundation, the value of your dollar extends far beyond one person or one opportunity. Your investment supports the future of our entire region, bringing the power of higher education within reach for thousands of people.

Your gift will not only change the lives of our students, but will also benefit you and your beneficiaries by improving your financial and tax obligations. Planned gifts can offer income tax deductions, lower or eradicate long-term capital gains taxes, reduce potential estate and gift taxes for your loved ones, or boost your current income.

The Foundation welcomes your gift and will work with you and your financial advisors to maximize its value. Donors can make a one-time gift or may consider one of the following options when giving.
