Spirit of Achievement
The Spirit of Achievement is a benefit for South Central College student and programs, hosted by the North Mankato Campus Foundation. This year's event on Thursday, April 24, 2014 will also feature the installation ceremony of Dr. Annette Parker, President of South Central College. More information will be mailed in March and can be found at http://southcentral.edu/n-mankato/the-spirit-of-achievement.html.
The SCC Golf Classic, held each year at the Mankato Golf Club, is another important fundraiser for the college. The 20th Annual SCC Golf Classic is scheduled for May 19, 2014 (shot-gun start at 12:30 p.m.) at the Mankato Golf Club. Register soon, as this event sold out in 2012 and 2013!
In the fall of 2014, more than 275 students will benefited from the generosity of the community with a scholarship to support their educational goals at SCC. The recipients, their guests and the donors to the foundation are annually welcomed to campus to meet and recognize the recipients.
Scholarships generally range in value from approximately a $500 to $2500 annual award. Additionally, scholarship funds are available to new and current/returning students.
Eligible students may apply by completing and submitting the online scholarship application. The scholarship application process runs from December to March each year.
Annual Fund Drive
Each year, teams of volunteers from the community reach out to our region’s businesses and individuals to seek their support during the fall throughout the community campaign. Additionally, the faculty and staff at South Central also respond to the ongoing needs to raise funds to support the scholarships and programs of South Central College through their personal gifts to the foundation during the months of September and October. A listing of all of our generous donors can be found in the President’s Report.
Each winter, the South Central College Foundation auctions off a number of fun and unique items to bid on to raise money for our organization - and the more items we have the more money we can raise to support students through our programs and scholarships, so we are asking for your help.
Please consider donating an item, bidding on an online auction item and spreading the news of our auction to your friends and family.
To see the online auction as it starts to take shape and for more information, please visit www.biddingforgood.com/scc.
