Assuring Access to Higher Education

The mission of the ICC Educational Foundation is to assure access to higher education for our community. Your gift will support scholarships, technology and programs to advance the quality and accessibility of our institution and our ability to respond quickly to emerging priorities. Your support is a vital investment in the future of our community.

Equally important to accessibility is excellence. Local businesses turn to ICC to train and retrain their workforce. Time and again, community leaders and business owners tell us that the quality of education students receive is as important, if not more important, than the degree.

As a community college, we work hard to fulfill our role as “the people’s college” by providing access to high quality, affordable education for the people of our community. Any person with the desire to learn is welcome here and the opportunities we provide can change lives, not just of our students, but their families, as well.

Greatest Need

The ICC Excellence Fund provides flexibility to respond quickly to emerging needs and to provide support for faculty and staff development, programs, technology, equipment and software. It ensures students have access to a high quality, affordable education.


ICC Educational Foundation scholarships give people a chance to reach their goal of a higher education, a successful career and a new life! To many students, these scholarships mean everything. Although many scholarships are based on financial need, others are based on academic excellence, specific areas of student interests and ethnic or family background. When you support a scholarship at ICC, you can feel confident you are investing in our community’s future, as more than 80% of our students remain in central Illinois to live and work.
