“The best way business and industry can help ensure that tomorrow’s graduates are the employees we want to hire, is to get involved with JCTC and support it”.   – Stephen A. Williams, President and CEO, Norton Healthcare

For many students, college would not be possible without Jefferson’s lower tuition, convenient campuses and expansive network of academic and social support.  For others, Jefferson is the link to better jobs and important careers.

For the community, Jefferson is integral to ensuring a highly qualified and ready workforce, and is a significant player in the economic development for the region.

Through the generous support of donors, Jefferson’s students have access to programs, scholarships, equipment and facilities that would not be possible otherwise.

The JCTC Advancement Office strives to secure private gifts benefiting students, faculty, staff, programs and outreach.  The Office works hand-in-hand with the Jefferson Educational Foundation, a 501(c)3 charitable organization, whose mission is to raise money for Jefferson Community & Technical College.

Your investment can be applied to:

  • Scholarships
  • Student Emergency Fund (under development)
  • Endowments
  • Equipment funds
  • Unrestricted funds (applied to where the need is greatest)
  • Building and infrastructure (including naming opportunities)
  • Faculty and staff development

Why Private Support?

Community and technical colleges in Kentucky enroll nearly half of all undergraduate students but historically receive only 21 percent of state tax appropriations to higher education.

While state appropriations provide funding for basic operations, the types of academic opportunities that make Jefferson Community & Technical College truly exceptional must come from private sources.

Critically, as state appropriations have decreased, the tuition burden on students has increased.
Private sector funds provide the critical margin of excellence for Jefferson to fulfill its mission to enhance the quality of life and employability of our community’s citizens.

All gifts to Jefferson Community & Technical College and the JCTC Foundation are tax deductible.
