The Seattle Central Foundation advances the mission, work and impact of Seattle Central College and works to keep life changing education within reach for all who seek it.
About the Foundation
We are the Seattle Central College Foundation. We support the college’s mission to provide opportunities for academic achievement, workplace preparation, community service, and its commitment to creating a learning environment that is accessible, diverse, responsive and innovative.
We raise essential funds and create endowments for student scholarships, tutoring, emergency assistance, faculty development and student programs at Seattle Central College. This year, we gave more than $600,000 in scholarships to over 200 students.
Chartered as a 501(c)3 organization in Washington in 1978, we are governed by our volunteer Board of Directors, community leaders who lead the Foundation in supporting the students of Seattle Central College. We are the official gift-receiving agency for Seattle Central College.
The Foundation takes its role as steward of individual and corporate donor contributions seriously. Our Board’s Finance Committee is comprised of financial professionals ensuring that the Foundation's assets are managed wisely. Each year our funds are audited by a certified public accounting firm.

My scholarship has not only changed my life today, but for the rest of my life. It has reminded me that no matter the struggles I face, I can always find support.
