Employee Giving & Grants

Your good work as faculty, staff and administrators and the work of our Foundation all serve Jefferson’s mission and vision to be a dynamic, educational leader transforming lives and our community. We know you work hard every day to support the success of our students, so why do we ask for a little bit more? Simply stated, nothing sends a stronger message to our alumni, parents, community friends and donors that we not only work at JCC, but we too believe in our College enough to invest financially in its future.

Your gifts matter

From supporting scholarships and non-tuition benefits for students in need, to providing resources and technology for teaching and learning across campus, to simply keeping our beautiful college campus clean and safe, your gifts truly do make a difference.

You choose what your gift supports

As always, you designate how your contribution is used. Options include directing your gift to the JCC Employees Scholarship, an existing scholarship or endowed fund, or a specific College initiative or project such as the EDGE or Honors programs. You may also designate an unrestricted gift to be used where the College finds the greatest need.

How to make a gift

Payroll Deduction

Payroll deduction is an easy and convenient way to make gift to Jefferson. No gift is too small! Just $5 per pay period adds up to a total annual contribution of $130! A gift of $20 per pay period allows for a total contribution of $520.

Note: Payroll deductions will automatically renew annually unless the Foundation receives written notice from you to increase, decrease or stop deductions.

One-Time Gift

Donations can be made in person/via mail with a cash or check donation made payable to the JCC Foundation. Simply note your desired designation on the memo line.

Thank you for your dedication and commitment to Jefferson.
