The Annual Campaign for JCC
Together, JCC and the JCC Foundation face three compelling challenges: academic excellence, access to higher education, and capital resources. We work together and with the close support of our donors to meet this three-pronged challenge through The Annual Campaign for JCC. Every dollar committed to The Annual Campaign for JCC is both an economic and a human investment. Our promise to our students is to connect them to their goals by providing challenging educational experiences in a caring environment. When you make a gift in support of the JCC Foundation, you’re helping us fulfill our promise so that our students can fulfill theirs.
The Case for Support
Together, JCC and the JCC Foundation face three compelling challenges: academic excellence, access to higher education, and capital resources. We work together and with the close support of our donors to meet this three-pronged challenge through The Annual Campaign for JCC.
JCC is committed to recognizing and encouraging academic excellence and providing financial support to students with exceptional talent and leadership potential. By encouraging top students to begin their education here, we not only enhance Jamestown’s competitive position but we also prepare these students to become future community leaders.
Need: Current-use funding for USA Scholarships.
Funds are allocated from the JCC operating budget each year to cover USA Scholarship expenses that are not met by currently endowed funds. Gifts made in this category will be used to immediately provide USA Scholarships to qualifying students. The USA Scholarship provides first-time, full-time high school Regents graduates ranked in the top 20 percent of their graduating class with up to four semesters of NYS resident tuition not covered by JCC tuition waivers or by PELL, TAP, or PHEAA grants.
|Access to Higher Education|
Many students each year fall between the cracks of existing financial aid programs. Without financial support, many students cannot begin or continue their education. The JCC Foundation is deeply committed to providing all qualified and deserving students in western New York and northwestern Pennsylvania the opportunity to attain a JCC education — regardless of their financial status.

The JCC Foundation collaborates with the college to meet future challenges, and is therefore committed to providing resources that foster superior education and service to JCC students. Unrestricted gifts to the Annual Campaign for JCC provide the JCC Foundation with the flexibility necessary to address the most important unmet needs of our students and the college as a whole. Unrestricted gifts to the Area of Greatest Need are used college-wide. The JCC Foundation will work with college administrators to assign these gifts appropriately.
