Always have a willing hand to help someone, you might be the only one that does.

The Foundation was formed in 1977 as a non-profit 501(c)(3) corporation to raise and administer funds to support the mission and enhance the growth and development of Jackson State. Foundation funding provides for scholarships, programs, capital improvements, equipment and facilities, and other projects for which institutional funds are either not available or are in short supply.


Our purpose is to provide hope and opportunities so that JSCC students, their families, and our communities are transformed.  We support our purpose by raising funds to provide access to higher education and workforce development training to West Tennesseans.  Our goal is to never turn a potential student away.
