ACC is for Everyone.
The ACC Foundation supports the college and raises funds to ensure all members of our community have the opportunity to achieve their dreams. Through partnerships and the generosity of donors, the Foundation provides scholarships, training equipment, and student support. Additionally, the Foundation manages a critically important and growing student emergency fund.
By helping students with the financial challenges of college and life, we increase student success.

Each year, thousands of people in Central Texas seek to improve their lives through education. Most ACC students are part-time, working and caring for their families while trying to get ahead. By reducing financial barriers to higher education, we not only help individuals succeed, we promote a pipeline of skilled workers for the workforce and build strong communities.
A Message from the ACC Foundation Board Chair
Over the years, the ACC Foundation has raised more than $21 million for scholarships and program support for the college. Today, with an endowment at $9.2 million, we serve hundreds of students each year. I am proud to work with such a dedicated Board of Directors who volunteer their time to make college a reality for so many. We could not have done this without the substantial support of our many donors. It is their continued commitment to the Foundation and the work of the college that has made such a lasting impact.
