A Worthy Investment
A gift to Alpena Community College is a worthy investment that pays dividends in the young men and women who otherwise might not have the advantage of a high-quality, higher education. Your gift helps ACC students plan for a successful future.
"An investment in knowledge always pays the best interest." Benjamin Franklin
Ways You Can Give
ACC Foundation Scholarship Fund
You can make a college education more affordable for both traditional and non-traditional students (those who have been out of high school at least five years) by donating to the ACC Foundation Scholarship Fund. Many scholarships are awarded each year from the generous donations of individuals, service clubs, corporations, and foundations. Donations of any amount are welcome.
Alumni Wall Form
As you make your mark on the world, leave your mark at ACC, is the slogan for the Alumni Walk at the Library entrance to the Center Building. Alumni can purchase a brick for $50 with their name and graduation date or other information. Bricks will be placed annually. Alumni Bricks can also be purchased as gifts or memorials.
Matching Gift Program
If your employer is one of hundreds of companies across the nation offering a matching gift program, you can double or triple your gift to the ACC Foundation.
Named Endowment Fund
An endowment fund is a great opportunity for you to make a long-lasting and far-reaching gift to ACC. With the contribution of at least $10,000, which can be paid over the course of five years, an endowment fund can be established with its purpose and name determined by you. The ACC Foundation invests your donation, and a percentage of the interest earned is used for the purpose of the fund. An endowment fund insures that the intention of your gift will remain forever.
Valued and helpful gifts to the College are not always in the form of cash. They can items such as cars, computer equipment, cameras, or even plants and flowers to help enhance the surroundings.
Pathways to Innovation Endowment Fund
We believe it's important to offer our students the latest in programs, courses, and technology. The Pathways to Innovation Endowment Fund helps us achieve this goal by providing the resources for current course improvements, research for new course offerings, and increased faculty development. Donations are invested, and a percentage of this fund provides a growing level of support each year.
Program Support Funds
These funds give you an opportunity to support a specific degree or certificate program at ACC. Your donation may be used to purchase needed equipment and supplies or provide additional instructional enhancement support for any program.
Scramble for Scholarships
The Annual Scramble for Scholarships gives golf enthusiasts and others a fun way to show their support for ACC. Money raised from entry fees and hole sponsorships goes toward the ACC Foundation Scholarship Fund.
