Every student at Jamestown Community College has a personal story. For many of them, your support is a key part of that story — because without it, a college education is simply not attainable. 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.
Colleges and universities across the state are facing dwindling levels of state support, and JCC is no different. The JCC Foundation is more critical than ever before to the success of our students. Last year, we distributed $834,421 in scholarships, grants, and other support, all of which helped our students achieve their goals.
An important part of how the JCC Foundation supports students is the USA Scholarship, now in its 35th year of encouraging the best and brightest to choose JCC as the starting point for their college educations. Since the USA Scholarship's inception in 1979, JCC has distributed $6 million to more than 3,000 students, all of whom graduated in the top 20 percent of their high school class.
We are proud to provide extraordinary opportunities and extraordinary outcomes for students. The generous support of the JCC family, our alumni, friends, and community partners, sustain and enable these continuing opportunities. No gift is too small and every dollar is important. With your ongoing support, future generations of students will be able to achieve their life’s goals.
