Since 1968, the ICC Foundation has raised funds for scholarship to recognize superior leadership, academic achievement, and community service among ICC students and assist them with unmet financial needs. The ICC Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit foundation organized under Kansas law and is fiscally and organizationally separate from Independence Community College. Each year, the ICC Foundation provides $100,000 to ICC to fund student scholarships. To help grow scholarship funds, the ICC Foundation sponsors fundraising events in an effort to enhance our scholarship programs. While endowments and planned gifts guarantee future funding sources for the ICC Foundation, monies raised through events will provide immediate financial support for ICC Foundation scholarships. The ICC Foundation is indebted to the many friends of the college who help us, help ICC students achieve their educational goals.
