In December 2017 SVC Foundation completed our first comprehensive campaign to meet the critical needs of students through raising annual and endowed funds for student Emergency and Childcare Assistance and an Opportunity for Excellence Fund. With generous support from our communities, we raised $3,115,525 to Remove Barriers for students and supplement our robust scholarship program.
OPPORTUNITY FOR EXCELLENCE
We are supporting SVC students with critical needs that scholarships cannot address.

Why I Give
