About the Faribault Campus Foundation

The South Central College Faribault Campus Foundation was founded in 1983 as the Faribault Area Vocational Technical Trust Association to promote community post-secondary education in the Faribault area. The Foundation is a 501(c)(3), non-profit organization governed by a board of directors comprised of individuals from the area, including South Central College alumni.

Summary of the Year
Inspired by the theme Give Today for Tomorrow: Support Student Scholarships, the Foundation’s 2016-17 annual fund drive team of volunteers was led by Jason DeMars (’94 Machining), former machining instructor at South Central College and now with Cybex. The successful fund drive raised over $173,000 with funds generated from personal calls on businesses and individuals, a direct mail campaign, grants and an on-line auction.  Funds are dispersed throughout the year for student scholarships and program support and thanks to generous donations from the above mentioned sources, the Foundation awarded $125,000 for student scholarships and program support in 2016-17.

Endowed Funds

Endowments are truly gifts that last forever. An endowment can be established to support scholarships or general initiatives of the college and provide annual support for the chosen initiative using interest earned. A minimum contribution of $10,000 is required to establish an endowment and this can be done over a three year period if desired.
