Growing Together!

For many years, colleges and universities have depended on their Foundations for additional support and resources, but 30 years ago, foundations for community colleges were rare. Because of the foresight of dedicated community leaders, the Spoon River College Foundation was officially established as a 501(c)(3), Not for Profit Corporation in 1979.

The Foundation’s original mission was "to support the general welfare of Spoon River College…for educational, service, capital, and other institutional needs." As you can see above, the intent of that mission, while broadened, essentially remains the same today.

Since 2000, the Foundation and the college have provided over one million dollars for scholarships and college programs, innovation grants, faculty research, facility and technology upgrades, and community projects. The Foundation Board of Directors works hand-in-hand with the college’s Board of Trustees and Administration to ensure that "excellent educational opportunities" are possible for ALL residents in the college’s district and beyond.

Contributions to the Foundation are given in many ways--through donations, naming rights opportunities, grants, personal or organizational scholarships, fundraising activities, planned gifts, special campaigns and so much more. Our current endowment is $2.5 million and growing!

For over three decades, hundreds of students have been able to achieve their educational goals because of scholarships awarded through the Foundation. Faculty members have received support for innovative activities through funds awarded by the Foundation, and new furnishings and technology-enhanced classrooms have been added to the college’s campuses and centers. All of this is due to the good stewardship practices by our Board of Directors and because of committed supporters like you.

Our website is a continuous work in progress. We will also be adding new information each month so we invite you to "check on us" often. We thank you for your continued interest and support of Spoon River College and the SRC Foundation.
