Be A Hero


The 2020 Faculty/Staff Scholarship Campaign raised $32,282, which offered 23 student scholarships and helped 15 students with tools/testing in FY2021. We are pleased to report 67% of full-time employees contributed, including 33 who pledged 1% of their salary.

Your gift to the HERO campaign goes directly to the Savannah Technical College Foundation and is handled completely separately from any other college budget process. These gifts support our students through scholarships and provide financial support for tools/equipment and testing.

When you become a donor to the HERO campaign, you define exactly how your money is to be spent. All gifts are used as defined by the donor. That is the Savannah Technical College Foundation’s responsibility to its donors.

You can make a gift (cash, check or online) anytime. You may also start payroll deduction any time during the year.

You may also change your monthly deduction amount as you like. If you should want to discontinue your payroll deduction, you can also do that at any time. Please understand that payroll deduction changes will take a full month before they are reflected in your paycheck.

    • $25,000 gross per year, 1% = $250 or about $21 per month
    • $35,000 gross per year, 1% = $350 or about $29 per month
    • $45,000 gross per year, 1% = $450 or about $37.50 per month
  • Contribute a minimum, one-time gift of $21 (or $2 per month if using payroll deductions) and receive a thank-you gift.
  • Contribute at any other level and receive a thank-you gift.

Gifts received through the HERO Campaign automatically support the Faculty & Staff Scholarship Fund, however, you can elect to:

  • BE A TOOLS HERO (Any amount supports purchase of tools/ required equipment)
  • BE A TESTING HERO (Any amount supports end of program/licensure testing)

You can make a gift (payroll deduction, cash, check or online) anytime during the year.
