Program areas at Central Piedmont Community College Foundation

Removing financial barriers and expanding access to opportunities: throughout its history, Central Piedmont has been a place of opportunity and transformation. The Central Piedmont Foundation secures philanthropic support to invest in scholarships that make the College accessible for students with financial need. Scholarships include opportunity scholarships for students from charlotte's most economically-challenged high schools and neighborhoods; presidential scholarships for high-performing, under-resourced students; transfer scholarships for students preparing to earn a four-year degree; and career-focused scholarships for students who aspire to enter the workforce upon graduation. These resources are funded with designated, expendable, and endowed support. For fiscal year 2020, the Foundation funded more than 2,000 scholarships. The Foundation works to expand the College's student emergency fund, which serves as a critical resource for low-income, at-risk students. This fund addresses the obstacles to persistence and completion faced by students at Central Piedmont by providing one-time grants to assist with emergencies and unexpected expenses, including those caused or exacerbated by the covid-19 pandemic. In 2020, the Foundation supported and assisted in the loan of chromebooks and wifi to more than 250 students and employees. Additionally, the Foundation worked with the College's single stop office to increase existing one-time student emergency grants from $250 to $500 per student for those impacted by the pandemic.
Ensuring instructional excellence and relevance: the Foundation supports Central Piedmont by providing resources that encourage, develop, and recognize excellence of College faculty and staff, thereby strengthening the College's ability to provide the relevant education and hands-on learning experiences that equip students for productive, meaningful lives and position them to contribute to the growth and vitality of the region. In fiscal year 2020, with support from a long-time and generous donor, Central Piedmont established the parr center for teaching and learning excellence that supports professional development to ensure that faculty knowledge and skills are at the highest levels to meet the evolving educational and training needs of students. These resources are funded with designated, expendable, and endowed scholarship support.
Supporting student success, equity, and engagement: as an open-door institution, Central Piedmont strives to provide its diverse student body with the tools and support services necessary to facilitate success. The Foundation's work enhances the College's capacity to address the factors that are impediments to student retention and completion by creating a culture that promotes student success and expands opportunities for students to engage with and make meaningful connections to the College. Services for students include personal and academic counseling, academic and career advising, summer bridge, single stop, disability services, family resource and financial advising services, military family and veterans services, and out-of-classroom experiences such as internships, service learning, and study abroad. These resources are funded with designated, expendable, and endowed support.
