CVCC Foundation History

Dedicated volunteers, Mr. & Mrs. David Johnson, help out with the 2017 HOF silent auction.

The Chattahoochee Valley Community College Foundation (CVCC Foundation) is a 501(c)(3) organization incorporated in 1985 for the purpose of stimulating voluntary private support from alumni, parents, friends, corporations, foundations, and others for the benefit of CVCC.  Since its inception, the Foundation has played a vital role in securing private and public donations, and scholarships to serve the cultural, educational, and financial needs of a diverse student population.

The CVCC Foundation is managed by a board of directors.  Each board member serves at least a three-year term.  The CVCC Foundation is composed of business and community leaders who are residents of the CVCC service area, which includes the following counties: Russell, Lee, Barbour, Bullock, Macon, and Fort Benning and Columbus, Georgia, and the metropolitan area.  These individuals have a strong interest in the College and are committed to using their talents, energy, and influence to generate community support for the College and Foundation.

The CVCC Foundation awards funds each semester to students demonstrating need.  The number of applications has increased over the years.  The CVCC Foundation voted to increase the amount they were awarding in 2016 by doubling the scholarship budget.
