About the Foundation
The Cape Fear Community College Foundation, Inc. has been recognized as a tax-exempt non-profit corporation under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code since 1980. As such, the CFCC Foundation is qualified to receive tax deductible bequests, devises, transfers or gifts.
The Cape Fear Community College Foundation exists to support the mission of the College and its students, faculty, staff, programs, scholarships and specific capital projects. We secure and manage the endowment, gifts and grants consistent with donor intent; these include, but are not limited to, cash contributions, planned or estate gifts, securities, donated services, equipment and supplies for educational purposes.

Why Your Gifts Are Important
Last year, thanks to your generous support, the Foundation raised over $1M and were able to award scholarships to 718 students across 65 different programs.
Scholarships make a huge difference in a student’s life, giving them the ability to remain focused on their education. Today’s estimated cost to attend Cape Fear Community College is approximately $4,000 for tuition, books and fees for an entire year. Most of our students are working one or two jobs and juggling family responsibilities. They are facing mounting costs for living expenses including transportation and housing. There is often very little left to cover educational purposes. Without generous donors like you, many students will have to put their educational dreams on hold. We are asking you to consider making a gift today with immediate impact.
CFCC Foundation Work-study Student Receives Employee of the Year Award
Student Employee Amber Crowley has worked in the CFCC Foundation since Fall 2017 and recently was awarded by official proclamation the Student Employee of the Year Award (pictured with Mayor Bill Saffo above).
Amber is such a professional workstudy student and is considered an essential member of the staff team here at the CFCC Foundation. She is typically the first face you see at our front desk window and greets everyone with a smile. She is always willing to do anything and everything we ask of her. She is incredibly responsive, reliable and professional, both verbally over the phone and in written documentation. She volunteers to represent us at special events and helps us set-up and clean-up every chance she gets. She is a quick learner and took it upon herself to become very skilled in using our Raisers Edge software so that she could help us build better relationships with our donors. She is an absolute joy to work with and represents the welcoming and inviting culture we strive to offer at CFCC. If she was going into our line of work, she would be hired in a heartbeat, but we fully support her career goals of becoming an Occupational Therapist.
We are grateful for her devotion to the CFCC Foundation and this award could not have been given to a more deserving student. Congratulations Amber!
Please join us in support of CFCC’s talented students by investing in their future.
