The State Fair Community College Foundation, a nonprofit, tax-exempt corporation, was established in 1981 to raise funds to meet the needs of the college. The foundation’s mission is to support and assist the college in serving the community by providing accessible, quality educational programs and services.
The foundation’s goals are:
- To raise funds to meet college needs
- To enlist advocates for the college
- To strengthen the college image
- To protect donor rights
- To effectively manage resources
- To promote institutional flexibility
- To steward donor gifts
There are many ways to give to the SFCC Foundation, all of which help the college enhance services, scholarships and opportunities for our students and the community we serve. Each year hundreds of students directly benefit from charitable contributions made by SFCC alumni and friends—individuals, corporations, foundations, and service organizations. Your gift provides hope and opportunities for the next generation of students.
The SFCC Foundation has registered with AmazonSmile, and this means that 0.5 percent of eligible purchases made through Amazon will be donated to the foundation. Please note that the foundation is registered under its proper name of J. Higdon Potter Educational Foundation Inc.

Why should you do this? Because lots of small donations can add up to BIG money that the SFCC Foundation can use to support the college’s programs, services and scholarships.
Each year the foundation sponsors several events, including themed fundraisers to benefit college needs; Donors and Scholars luncheons to bring together scholarship patrons and the students who benefit from their philanthropy; and Jingle on the Green, a free community holiday celebration on the Sedalia campus.
