Motlow College Foundation

Changing Student Lives

At its core, Motlow State Community College is about people. Our Foundation is also about people - funded by people, directed by people, serving people, and providing people financial resources. These resources are necessary to offer scholarships, support program development, and maintain first-rate facilities that will allow our students the opportunity to pursue careers in the programs of their choice. We are fortunate to have citizens in our service area that are genuine in their desire to serve others and who want to support the next generation's opportunities for success, happiness and benevolence.

About the Foundation

Motlow College Foundation is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization which exists solely to support and advance the objectives of Motlow State Community College to provide educational and career opportunities in our 11-county service area. Through the generosity of community friends, corporations, alumni, employees and private foundations, the Foundation provides scholarships and financial assistance to deserving students; equipment and program enhancements to academic and athletic departments; and capital funding for new college facilities and upgrades.

Our mission is to connect private and corporate philanthropists with opportunities to support Motlow State and to build relationships that make a difference in the lives of our students and our community.

Scholarships and Assistance Funds

Motlow State serves many first-generation college students who have limited financial and emotional support. Without clear direction and guidance, some students become overwhelmed by the process and are unable to seek assistance. We all lose when potential goes untapped. One of the goals of Motlow is for students to graduate free of debt; therefore, scholarship funds are essential in meeting this goal. The Foundation strives to make these goals a reality by providing scholarships, textbook assistance and emergency funds to students in immediate need of additional support.
