ABOUT ALAMANCE COMMUNITY COLLEGE FOUNDATION
Founded in 1984, the priorities of the ACC Foundation are providing scholarship and financial aid to students, providing funding for professional development activities for faculty and staff, and establishing endowments to provide for future growth and instructional chairs.
The Foundation assists hundreds of students annually with scholarships and financial aid so that they are able to have access to a college education. Professional development funds from the Foundation help pay for faculty and staff continuing education and memberships in professional organizations.
