Port Huron, MI – St. Clair County Community College President Deborah Snyder, Ph.D., SC4 Foundation Chair Harold Burns and Community Foundation President and CEO Randy Maiers are pleased to announce an expanded philanthropic partnership as the Community Foundation assumes administration of SC4 Foundation scholarships and funds.
“The college and the Community Foundation bring to the area a combined 169 years of service to this community in education and philanthropy, and the SC4 Foundation has helped countless students attend college,” Snyder said. “This collaborative partnership will allow us to have an even greater impact on the students and community we serve for many years to come.”
The organizations have a long history of cooperation. Most recently, the Community Foundation provided $750,000 in financing to support the student housing development in downtown Port Huron. SC4 was also integral to the launch of the Community Foundation’s Complete Your Degree program in 2017, a program that has celebrated its first graduate.
“Since its founding in 1963, the SC4 Foundation has contributed thousands of dollars to students who otherwise would not be able to attend college, enhancing the learning experience for all students. A strong college is a community asset,” Burns said. “We’re proud to partner with the Community Foundation as we help our next generation of students prepare for a bright future.”
“This natural partnership aligns well with our focus on college, career and life success,” said Mike Cansfield, board chair of the Community Foundation. “We are proud to support the success of SC4 students by connecting philanthropic dollars with opportunities on campus.”
