The Foundation

Paving the Way. Pictured: Architect's rendition of the exterior of Foundation Hall. Alexandria Technical & Community College Foundation (ATCCF) was established in 1971 as the fundraising arm of the college. Over the years, thousands of students have benefited from ATCCF scholarships as well as from in-kind donations of equipment.

For many students, receiving a scholarship can make the difference as to whether or not they can attend ATCC. As a result of the expensive technical equipment needed for training many of our programs have higher than average "per student" cost than a traditional four-year college.

This educational training is critical as the college prepares the workforce of tomorrow. This workforce needs to be trained on state-of-the-art equipment and their focus should be on learning. That is why we are here to help.

Thanks to the generous support of donors, the Foundation helps students realize their dream of a post-secondary education through scholarship support.

This past year the Board announced our new PAVING THE WAY campaign. We extend a heartfelt thank you to those who have already chosen to help us with our mission. We encourage others to join us in PAVING THE WAY by supporting our students, our college and the community in which we live. We invite you to check out the links for information on how you can get involved.
