South Suburban College Foundation Initiates 2013 Scholarship Donor Drive

SOUTH HOLLAND, IL—(ENEWSPF)—September 18, 2013. The South Suburban College Foundation (SSCF) announces the 2013 Scholarship Donor Drive is officially under way.  The SSCF is seeking support from the local community to help make a difference in the lives of residents seeking their college education.  This support provides scholarship assistance each year to many students who otherwise would be unlikely to begin or complete their college education.  The SSCF Board of Directors has set this year’s fundraising goal at $100,000. 

One-hundred percent (100%) of Donor Drive donations benefit scholarship and student assistance funds.  Whether it is a high school graduate, an unemployed resident looking for a career change, or a single parent pursuing their college degree for the first time, the SSC Foundation offers scholarship assistance to all students in need. Helping students achieve their college dream can give them the tools to improve their lives and their communities.  

Scholarship opportunities are critical for SSC students.  Many are struggling to balance family, employment, and school responsibilities while they are often unable to receive Financial Aid.  The majority of SSC scholarship recipients do not qualify for any other type of financial assistance. Scholarship money is provided primarily through this fall Donor Drive.

All scholarship contributions to the SSCF are 100% tax-deductible (TIN: 23- 7191736).  The SSCF staff works cooperatively with individuals and organizations to develop a donor plan of any level. New scholarships can also be established with a $750 donation.

Donations may be made online at www.ssc.edu/foundation, via PayPal to [email protected] or mailed to:
