Southern Columbia Community Foundation
A group of dedicated volunteers has formed an educational foundation whose goal will be to enhance educational opportunities for Southern Columbia Area's students and staff. The group's 501 (c) (3) paperwork filed in February 2017 has been approved and it is now recognized as a nonprofit organization known as the Southern Columbia Community Foundation. The SCCF has begun to hold regular board and committee meetings and has been devoting much time planning and implementing initatives which will benefit Southern Columbia Area's educational programs.
Purpose: The Foundation is an independent public charity dedicated to encouraging community-wide participation and philanthropy in order to enhance and expand enrichment opportunities for all students in the Southern Columbia Area School District and insure long-range financial flexibility for schools within the District.
Mission Statement: The mission of the Foundation is to create a worldwide community of alumni and friends who will partner with the District in its continued pursuit of educational excellence through philanthropic donations of money, goods, services, and time.
