Our Non-Profit Community Spotlight

Scott Community College Foundation

Scott Community College Foundation

Since our establishment in 1985, the Scott Community College (SCC) Foundation has worked to provide financial resources to support students and our college community. Each year we utilize the generous gifts we receive from our board members, faculty and staff members, area businesses, and many others to offer scholarships, acquire new instructional equipment, and launch special projects.

In addition to scholarships, we also support students through our Student Assistance Program. The program provides emergency funding to help with unexpected student expenses such as internet access, textbooks, laptops, or even transportation. This fund helps to ensure our students’ success and their degree completion.

We currently support students at several Quad Cities locations including: the Urban Campus, Blong Technology Center, West Davenport Center and Belmont Campus. Each student has a unique story and a unique set of strengths and challenges. Some students begin classes with a clear career goal, others discover their passion through their education. Despite all of the obstacles our students face, they all share a desire to learn, master new skills, become better providers, employees, and members of the community.

We value the strengths of the Northwest Bank Investment Management Group as they make it effortless for us to remain focused on our mission to serve our students and the college, while they help us achieve our financial goals. The team is very responsive to all our needs, quick to act when questions arise, and they make the most complicated reports and long-term planning strategies straightforward for our Investment Committee and Board Members. We greatly value their support and look forward to growing with them.
