Every year, names of those who contribute to the Southwestern Community College Foundation fill up several pages of our Annual Report. The sheer length of this list proves beyond any doubt that the citizens of Jackson, Macon and Swain Counties and the Qualla Boundary fully support our College.
By investing in Southwestern, you are investing in the future of many students. Consider the young seventh-grader who might not otherwise have an opportunity to attend college without New Century Scholars. Think about the single mother who wants to provide for her family by earning a degree and pursuing a better-paying, more fulfilling career. And remember the lifelong assembly line worker who got laid off when a factory left town.
All of these people – and many others who have their own unique stories – have an opportunity to work toward their dreams thanks to the generosity and kindness of all these donors we list.
Thanks to this support, the future is brighter – for all of us.

When you contribute to the Southwestern Community College Foundation, do you wonder how your money is being spent?
With a donation to a scholarship fund, you know that you are not only investing in students, but also in your community.
Each year, Southwestern Community College graduates who have received Foundation scholarships enter the job market in Jackson, Macon and Swain Counties as workers who provide health care when you're sick, fix your car, care for your children, design the advertising you read, cut your hair and provide other services too numerous to count. When you think about the people who provide everyday services to make your life better, you may be thinking about our graduates.
