Inaugural Day of Giving Raises More than $27,000 for Student Scholarships

The Aiken Technical College Foundation raised $27,276.51 for student scholarships during its inaugural Day of Giving on September 1.

In honor of the college’s founding on September 1, 1972, the Day of Giving lasted 19 hours and 72 minutes. Alumni, friends, and community partners were invited to participate by giving to the Foundation to support the Student Scholarship Fund.

“The inaugural Day of Giving was the perfect opportunity the recognize Aiken Tech’s history and impact on the community while raising scholarship funds to support future Aiken Tech students,” said ATC Foundation Director Beth LaClair, Ph.D.

Newly accepted and current Aiken Tech students can apply for scholarships for the 2023-2024 academic year from January 1 through March 1.

While the focus of the Day of Giving was student scholarships, there are additional opportunities to support initiatives funded by the Foundation, added Dr. LaClair.

“There is still a critical need to support students beyond tuition scholarships,” she said. “Gifts can be made to the Student Emergency fund, a fund that provides support to students in a financial crisis that is impacting their ability to successfully continue their studies as well as the campus Blessing Box.”

Corporate sponsors for the Day of Giving event were:

  • Academic Year Sponsors: MAU Workforce Solutions, McMillian Pazdan Smith Architecture, Piedmont Augusta, Rolls Royce, Savannah River Mission Completion, and Savannah River Nuclear Solutions.
  • Semester Scholarship Sponsors: Security Federal Bank and SRP Federal Credit Union.
