The College was awarded a three-year grant from the Community Foundation for Northeast Florida in support of the College’s Achieving the Dream (ATD) efforts. As one of more than 200 community colleges throughout the country to be selected for ATD, we have joined a national community college network dedicated to improving student success and giving them greater opportunity for economic success.
ATD’s capacity-building framework and companion self-assessment allow members to pinpoint areas of strength and opportunities for improvement across key institutional areas such as leadership and vision, teaching, learning and data and technology. Through the grant, FSCJ will work with the Community Foundation to identify, enhance and elevate the learning opportunities available for our community.
Now in its 52nd year, The Community Foundation for Northeast Florida is Florida’s oldest and largest community foundation. It works to stimulate philanthropy to build a better community – helping donors invest their philanthropic gifts wisely, helping nonprofits serve the region effectively and helping people come together to make the community a better place. The Foundation has more than $312 million in assets and has made grants in excess of $332 million since 1964.
