Waubonsee Foundation

The Waubonsee Community College Foundation was chartered in 1978 as a 501(c)3 tax exempt, nonprofit organization.

Waubonsee Community College opens the door of knowledge, sparks imagination and enlightens lives through learning. The Waubonsee Foundation strengthens this vision by providing opportunities for all citizens in our community to have access to a quality education.

Each year the Foundation raises funds to provide scholarships for deserving area students. For the 2015-16 academic year, the Waubonsee Community College Foundation has awarded 260 scholarships totaling more than $206,050. Learn more about applying for a 2016-2017 scholarship.
