About the Foundation
Since it opened almost forty years ago, Santa Fe Community College (SFCC) has benefited from strong partnerships with individual donors, businesses, and foundations in New Mexico and nationally. They have rallied around the SFCC mission: “Empower Students, Strengthen Community.”
In 2004, SFCC Foundation was established as a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization to support the college and its students. We work closely with campus leadership, staff, and student organizations to identify the most impactful ways for donors to provide students with opportunities to achieve their academic and career goals. When our students succeed, their families thrive, and our communities become stronger.
We help donors provide scholarship support because:
More than 70% of SFCC students are the first in their families to attend college. They juggle full or part-time jobs, family responsibilities, and challenging classes to earn an associate’s degree or certificate. Our scholarships provide flexible funding in that they not only pay for tuition but also cover lab fees, textbooks, childcare, or transportation costs and can make the difference between graduating on time or dropping out. Scholarships inspire students to focus on their studies and to persevere when the going gets tough.
We help donors provide support for innovative programs by:
Supporting academic programs at SFCC that provide classroom and experiential learning opportunities and open doors to rewarding careers. Supported by generous donors, programs in Controlled Environment Agriculture, Culinary Arts, and automotive technologies (to name just three) are building the workforce needed to sustain a healthy Northern New Mexico economy.
