JCC Students Meet Scholarship Donors at Scholars Reception

Donors and scholarship recipients met for the first time at the Jefferson Community College (JCC) Foundation Annual Scholars Reception held in late April. With nearly 200 scholarship donors, students, faculty and staff in attendance, the Scholars Reception provided the opportunity for contributors to see how their philanthropy is distributed and for students to speak in person to their donor while building relationships.

"The Scholars Reception is a special opportunity for students to thank their benefactors personally, and for donors to see the fruits of their investments,” says Chrissie M. Rizzo, executive director of the JCC Foundation. “It was especially poignant this year to hear from two alumni, who sponsor a scholarship, speak publicly about how much it meant for them to receive scholarships as students, and how they now want to give back to JCC.”

The JCC Foundation administers 290 scholarships totaling nearly $300,000 in aid to students each year. The Jefferson Gala, an annual fundraiser for the JCC Foundation, will be held on Saturday, November 9, 2013 at 8:00 p.m.
