Donors have a big impact on our community so let’s keep helping!

We are all about community! Santa Fe Community College is the only public higher education institution based in Santa Fe with a mission to serve our community. Our student body is a cross-section of the area, with everyone from recent high school graduates, to adults coming back to finish their degree to people just taking a class to continue learning. They come from all walks of life and different parts of Northern New Mexico. Santa Fe is a unique city and a fantastic place to learn. 

“I chose Santa Fe Community College because straight out of high school, I wasn’t sure what path I wanted to take,” said Emiliano Diaz, SFCCF’s scholarship recipient. “I feel like this community here gave me the most options to dip my toes into before I completely commit to something.”In 2022, 1,022 students out of 4,800 received financial aid. We have some of the lowest tuition in the country, yet the costs outside of tuition are often the most challenging for students to pay for. That’s where the Foundation, with the help of donors like you, can enormously impact our students’ lives. Gifts like yours significantly affect students by clearing obstacles and providing a direct path to graduation.

“The scholarship has really enabled me to just focus on my education. I don’t really have to worry about how I am going to get food in my mouth or how I am going to get from point A to point B. It really covers all of my costs, and it feels like the only thing I am really accountable for is getting my grades where they are supposed to be.”

There are many ways you can once again give to keep the doors of opportunity open for SFCC students. For example, your donations help fund the Student Emergency Assistance Fund and the Campus Cupboard, two vital services that help our students who are most in need of aid. We are our community so let’s continue to help the students who need us most.
