About the STC Foundation

Founded in 1984, the Savannah Technical College Foundation is a private, nonprofit organization that exists to raise and disburse funds to support the College’s efforts to enhance learning, workforce training and economic development in Bryan, Chatham, Effingham and Liberty counties. The Foundation also supports student success through its many privately funded scholarships.

The state of Georgia provides less than 33% of the operational budget for the college; therefore, for Savannah Technical College to meet its mission of excellence, private investment is essential. The Foundation, its volunteer Board of Trustees and Community Council work as advocates and solicit funds from public, corporate and individual partnerships that are necessary to cultivate investment in the college.

The Foundation organizes and actively promotes fundraising events and new scholarship opportunities. The Foundation is actively engaged in a $10 million major gifts campaign to support five important college initiatives.
