The Surry Community College Foundation, Inc. was established in 1966 as a non-profit organization dedicated to providing financial assistance to students, promoting faculty development and supporting programs which enhance the college's learning environment.
The first grant to the Foundation was an $800 scholarship from North Carolina Foam Industries in September 1966. The Foundation has a variety of methods through which contributions can be made to serve the best interests of the donor and the purposes of the Foundation. These include gifts of cash; common stock or other securities; life insurance policies with the Foundation as beneficiary; property and/or real estate with provisions for continued use for the duration of a person’s life; donations by will through an estate; gifts in honor or memorial; trusts; individual retirement accounts; gifts-in-kind; and other methods developed to meet specific needs of the donor. All gifts must meet the requirements of the Foundation by-laws and practice.
All philanthropic support to benefit Surry Community College should be channeled through the Surry Community College Foundation, Inc., which is the affiliated agency through which tax deductible gifts can be made to the College.
