About Us

A Helping Hand Up for Higher Education

Our dream is to help every person in our community striving to achieve a college education and improve their life.

At the SCC Educational Foundation we understand that post-secondary education for all of our citizens is the path to economic prosperity. That’s why we’re working hard to develop the resources to provide high quality, affordable higher education right here in Solano County and Winters.

Solano Community College is making an impact daily by educating over 13,000 local students from diverse backgrounds. Students have an opportunity to select an academic major in nearly 100 career fields. SCC accepts all students, including those that excelled in high school to others lacking sufficient academic preparation for college.

These students know the value of hard work, and embrace the fact that higher education can pull them and their families out of poverty. At the SCC Educational Foundation, we partner with the community and alumni to transform student lives, not with a handout, but with a helping hand up.
