The Salem Community College Foundation was founded in 1975 with a commitment to assist the College in acquiring private, corporate, and government support for the improvement and expansion of academic programs, College facilities, and services. In today's ever-changing world, the community college must promote academic and cultural advancement while embracing the values of the community.
The Foundation provides financial and other support for the College beyond that which can be obtained through state, county, and tuition sources. The goals of the Foundation are:
- To assist the SCC Board of Trustees in the growth and development of the College for the purpose of broadening educational and cultural opportunities.
- To assist the College in acquiring private, corporate, and government funding for the improvement and expansion of services, equipment, facilities, and events that cannot be adequately funded through other means.
- To provide financial support to community members to reach their educational goals and potentials through the continuous development of endowments and scholarships.
