SSC Foundation



In light of the State of Illinois’ financial issues, budget impasses and their direct impact on South Suburban College (SSC), the SSC Foundation is seeking $90 gifts from those who wish to help make a difference. This charitable activity is the college’s first capital campaign in decades in order to make a key facility project finally become a reality—a student assistance center named SSC Circle. All donors will have their names immortalized on a donor wall within SSC Circle. The campaign is titled “90 for 90” and is targeting $90 (or more) one-time donations throughout SSC’s current 90th anniversary year with a goal to raise $90,000. Once the goal is achieved, the college will provide matching funds to complete the project. SSC Circle would provide significant, much needed immediate support for student assistance. DONATE NOW!

South Suburban College Foundation

The mission of the South Suburban College Foundation (SSCF) is to support the educational purposes and objectives of the College by providing assistance in the promotion of SSC’s services and facilities. The SSC Foundation seeks funding to strengthen College programs with a primary focus on student scholarships. Established in 1973, the Foundation is solely governed by a Board of Directors composed of the region’s business, civic and community leaders.

The SSCF is a philanthropic, not-for-profit organization chartered in the State of Illinois and is a 501(c)(3) tax exempt organization (EIN: 237191738). It works cooperatively with individuals and organizations in developing a plan to fit the needs of the donors. The Foundation raises funds primarily through annual campaigns including the Showcase Dinner in the spring, and the fall Donor Drive. The total SSC Foundation endowment as of March 31, 2017 is $1,047,430.00.

With the cost of higher education on the rise and state funding on the decline, students are finding it more difficult to afford a full-time college education. At SSC, 90% of our students fall under the low income, first generation, disabled or low income and disabled criteria. Your donation significantly helps these students and is an investment in the future economic development of the south suburban region.
