Southeast Education Foundation Inc

A nonprofit organization

24 Donors

Southeast Kentucky Community & Technical College provides hope and the resources that people in our communities need for a successful future.  Its sole purpose is to make life better for its students, their families and their friends.

So much of what Southeast does wouldn’t happen - or even be successful - without support from people who hold a special place in their heart for our communities.  

Support comes in many forms - from participating in an event to serving as an advocate.  All types of support are very important and deeply appreciated.  But on April 24th, the Southeast Education Foundation is inviting you to support SKCTC with your personal gifts.

All donations to the Southeast Education Foundation on
Kentucky Gives Day will support the Student Emergency Fund at Southeast Kentucky Community & Technical College.

Federal and state budget cuts are sure to have an impact on
SKCTC students, reducing financial aid, work study jobs and other assistance critical to providing them access to a college education and job training. In addition to tuition assistance, Southeast students often struggle to pay for
expensive textbooks, calculators, study supplies, course fees, uniforms, child care expenses, gas money, car repairs, eyeglasses, computer supplies, hearing aids and any number of needs that prevent them from successfully pursuing their
educational goals.

“More than 75% of Southeast students qualify for some type
of financial aid. The resources available to them and to the college are just not enough to cover all the needs of our students, many of whom don’t have the personal income to pick up additional expenses beyond federal and state
grants,” said President W. Bruce Ayers. “We are excited to partner with other nonprofits across Kentucky to see how much we can raise to help our students.”

Before you consider your gift, please consider the following:

  • Southeast is currently ranked in the Top 10 of the nation’s community colleges by the renowned Aspen Institute.
  • Southeast has been ranked 8th among the nation’s top 10 community colleges by a Washington D.C. publication, which based its rankings on graduation rates, student-faculty interaction and student effort.
  • Southeast—like other public colleges in Kentucky--has not received a state funding increase in several years; in fact,
    it has also sustained multiple budget cuts. Despite this, enrollment has grown by more than 40% since 2000.
  • Southeast serves more than 5,000 students and employs 450 people on five separate campuses to ensure that everyone has access to a college education and job training.
  • Southeast awarded degrees or other academic
    credentials to more than 1,000 students in 2012.

Southeast truly touches the lives of thousands of people
across the region and beyond.  Southeast is fortunate to have so many friends, and you can be a part of its college
family by participating in Kentucky Gives Day.
