Our Mission: The purpose of the Foundation is to facilitate and encourage gifts to Fort Scott Community College in support of the college mission. It is private support that provides the margin of excellence in college programs.

Established in 1975, the Foundation functions as a non-profit, educational corporation. From modest beginnings, the Foundation, under the direction of a board of directors, now provides significant assistance to the college in the form of scholarships. In addition, at the request of a donor, gifts may be used for special projects.

Thanks to the generosity of many donors, the Foundation Fund is valued at more than $6 million. Great support has been received through the planned giving program. Due to contributions to the Foundation, Fort Scott Community College will remain a vibrant, responsive, full-service institution, fully capable of fulfilling its mission.
