Scholarships & Memorial Funds through the JCC Foundation

Making college a possibility through scholarships & awards

Jamestown Community College is committed to the belief that a college education should be within the reach of every student. Over the years, many supporters have created funds to promote study in a favorite program, honor a loved one, or help meet other special needs.

Your gift can establish an endowment, award a one-time scholarship in their name, or help fund other projects and scholarships at JCC. The JCC Foundation will work with you to determine the details of the award.

Planning the award

Your gift can be named in honor of an individual, organization, foundation, or corporation. As a donor, you will decide the area of support and the basic terms of the award, such as the award level and how the recipient is selected. No programs may discriminate among applicants on the basis of race, gender, religious preference, or ethnic origin.

Tribute or memorial gifts are gifts that are designated as "In Memory of" or "In Honor of" someone who is cherished by the donor. We frequently receive tribute gifts from family and friends of people associated with the college. In accordance with the donor's wishes, a gift receipt is sent to the donor and an acknowledgement of the gift is sent to the family of the person in whose name the gift is made.

How the awards are funded

Endowments are permanent funds in which the principle is held in perpetuity and only the investment is expended annually (payout). Annual scholarships can be established with an outreach gift of $250. Unlike an endowed scholarship, an annual scholarship is not a permanent fund and awarded only as long you choose to contribute to the fund.
