CFCC employees donate over $77,000 toward student scholarships

Employees at Cape Fear Community College recently donated over $77,000 to help CFCC students in financial need.

The funds were donated to the CFCC Foundation’s annual campus fund drive and will be used to provide scholarships and support initiatives for students, such as departmental grants for innovative academic programs. Over 75% of the college’s full-time employees contributed to the fund with additional donations are expected continue throughout the year.

On September 27, Dr. Frank Sells, president of Cape Fear Community College, along with instructors Susan Booth and Bob Philpott, employee co-chairs of the CFCC Campus Fund Drive, presented a ceremonial check to the CFCC Foundation for $77,000.

The check represented the collective donations of more than five hundred CFCC employees who donated during the college’s annual employee fund drive in September, which focused on a theme of “raising hopes and fulfilling dreams” for CFCC students.

The Cape Fear Community College Foundation exists solely to support the students, faculty, academic programs and mission of the College.
