Overview

Self-reported by organization

The Foundation believes 1) that a college education should be available to everyone who can benefit from it, 2) that the heart of a great teaching institution is its faculty and staff, 3) that Johnson County is part of a world marketplace where an awareness and understanding of other cultures is necessary to succeed, and 4) that the arts enrich the life of the campus and the community. In 2013-2014, the Foundation awarded more than $1,000,000 in scholarships to students for tuition, books, and program needs. As of June 30, 2014, the Foundation's endowment was $20,307,847 and its total assets were $28,707,648. Goals for 2014-15: to provide more funding for the needs of the College. Specifically: to more fully meet the scholarship needs of our students, to fund capital improvement needs to the Performing Arts facility; to increase the size of the endowment for the Nerman Museum of Contemporary Art and JCCC Performing Arts Series; to continue to strengthen the image of the Foundation in the community, while increasing awareness throughout Greater Kansas City of the College's funding needs.

Principal Officer

Ms. Kate B. Allen

BIO

Ms. Allen joined the JCCC Foundation as Executive Director of Institutional Advancement in the fall of 2010. She has a JD from the University of Kansas and an MBA from the University of Nebraska. Prior to coming to JCCC, Ms. Allen spent five years with the Blue Valley Educational Foundation and three years with The Children's Mercy Hospital Foundation.

STATEMENT FROM THE Principal Officer

"In 2008-2009, nearly $640,500 in Foundation scholarships was made available for students to attend Johnson County Community College. This last year, 2010-2011, $875,000 was raised to support 794 students. Who are these students? People who are linked by a desire to improve their lives through education. They are traditional students, fresh from high school. Many are non-traditional students balancing student life with raising a family and working a job. They are: professionals in need of job training, retraining, or career counseling, arts enthusiasts who enjoy attending a concert or viewing an exhibition of contemporary art, senior citizens who belong to our Brown and Gold club who take classes and work out in our life fitness center, high school students who take advantage of our College Now curriculum in preparation for their future coursework, and children who use our childcare facility and their parents who can attend school because of it. The collective mission of the institution is to do all we can to help them succeed. Together with our donors, we work to fulfill this mission every day."
