The San Juan College Foundation was established
in 1973 as a nonprofit, 501(c)(3), tax-exempt corporation to fill several
critical needs at San Juan
College and in the communities it serves. To meet the demands of the constantly
changing educational climate, the Foundation provides scholarships to deserving
students, state of the art technical equipment and program enhancements to
the academic departments, capital for additional college buildings, and funds
to broaden educational and cultural opportunities and services to citizens
of the community. By administering these resources to the college, the Foundation
hopes to enhance the economic development of communities within San Juan College’s
district as well as the quality of life to the residents.
The mission of the San Juan College Foundation is
to provide private sector resources for the advancement and support of San
