SOUTH HOLLAND, Ill. (October 9, 2018) – The South Suburban College Foundation (SSCF) is seeking year-end gifts from those who wish to help make a difference in the lives of local college students in need of financial assistance. The SSCF Annual Scholarship Donor Drive will continue through the end of the year, providing both a charitable gift opportunity and tax-deduction for all donors.
This support provides scholarship assistance each year to many students who otherwise would be unlikely to begin or complete their college education. One-hundred percent (100%) of Donor Drive donations benefit scholarship and student assistance funds. Whether it is a high school graduate, an unemployed resident looking for a career change, or a single parent pursuing a college degree for the first time, the SSCF offers scholarship opportunities to help students achieve their college dream, giving them the tools to improve their lives and their communities.
All scholarship contributions to the SSCF are 100% tax-deductible (TIN:23-7191736). SSCF staff work cooperatively with individuals and organizations to develop a donor plan of any level. New scholarships can also be established with a $1,000 donation.
Donations may be made online at www.ssc.edu/foundation, via PayPal to [email protected], or by mail to “SSC Foundation” at 15800 S. State Street, South Holland, IL 60473.
At South Suburban College, 90% of students fall into the low income, first generation, or disabled categories. In 2018, the Foundation awarded over $100,000 in grants to students, and has granted over $2 million since 1987.
