Education truly does changes lives…and Aiken Technical College is doing just that for the citizens of greater Aiken County. 

Making a donation to fund scholarships and the student emergency support fund are two impactful ways to make a difference in the lives of Aiken Technical College students. The ATC Foundation also accepts funds for educational equipment and materials, faculty and staff professional development, and to support endowments for general program needs of the College.  It is my privilege to work with the Foundation Board of Trustees and ATC staff to accomplish this life changing work.

Thank you for your interest in Aiken Technical College. I invite you to join us in achieving our mission of fostering workforce success by building partnerships with businesses and the community to provide financial support to our students and our College.
