The SCC Educational Foundation was established in 1985 to raise funds to support students and educational excellence at Solano Community College, and to help carry out the vision of “Transforming Students’ Lives.” Our efforts are focused on helping students achieve their education goals, but we’re also building a stronger community. An educated workforce is the foundation of every community. SCC provides the postsecondary education and training our citizens need to obtain quality jobs. The results are measured by lower unemployment rates, stable employment for our citizens, and enhanced quality of life for all.
We are proud that the College we support is becoming an elite community college in California in science and technology fields. Solano Community College is one of just 15 community colleges in California to be awarded a Bachelor’s Degree program, and the quality of our STEM programs have attracted multiple grant awards from the National Science Foundation and U.S. Department of Education. In addition, the College has over $100 Million in new construction planned, most of which is for science and technology programs.
SCCEF is an independent 501(c)(3) California nonprofit public benefit corporation under the direction of a board of directors, managed by an executive director, and operating out of College offices.
During the past four fiscal years (FY 2013-14 through FY 2016-17), the SCC Educational Foundation has raised nearly $1.1 million for College programs, including $211,000 for scholarships. The Foundation has donated over $1 million, including $153,000 for scholarships, $112,000 for general support for the college, $56,000 for athletics, and $34,000 for the alumni association. In addition, as of June 30, 2017, SCCEF retains $369,000 in restricted accounts for immediate use by Solano Community College departments and programs, including $110,000 for automotive technology, and $103,000 for scholarships. An additional $17,000 was raised in the past fiscal year for a new scholarship endowment fund.
