The Davidson County Community College Foundation is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization formed in 1968 to enhance the mission and vision of DCCC. As long as it has existed, the DCCC Foundation has supported the College and its students. In its first year, gifts to the DCCC Foundation totaled $17,000.

The Foundation is a vital resource for the acceptance and solicitation of all gifts for the support of education and the continued growth and progress of the College. It enables DCCC to grow and meet the needs of its students and community, goals that could not be achieved solely through state funding.

Today, assets of the DCCC Foundation top $12 million. In the fall of 2011, the Foundation announced a gift of more than $7.5 million from the late Christine Harris of Lexington. The donation was by far the largest gift the Foundation has received and is one of the largest gifts in North Carolina community college history.

DCCC is committed to providing educational excellence for its students. Scholarships, programs and new initiatives are possible because of the generous support of individuals and businesses in our community.
