With your gift to York County Community College through the YCCC Foundation, you make a statement about your belief in the importance of quality affordable education for everyone. Each year, hundreds of alumni, employees, friends of the college, local corporations, foundations and philanthropists help secure a brighter future for YCCC students through their charitable giving.
The York County Community College Foundation was organized and recognized by the Internal Revenue Service in 1995 as a 501(c)(3), tax-exempt organization (EIN# 22-3451600) and is structurally separate from York County Community College and is governed by an appointed Board of Directors.
The Foundation was formed because private gifts help make a college exceptional, while traditional resources (state assistance and tuition/fees) typically support the basics. The YCCC Foundation is the preferred channel for private gifts to the College, through annual giving programs, planned gifts, and major or special gift campaigns. Gifts to the Foundation qualify for the maximum tax deduction allowed under the law.
The mission of the YCCC Foundation is to encourage and advocate for the expansion of educational resources by developing private and public support of York County Community College and its mission.
