The Foundations of Coastal Pines Technical College
Two non-profit organizations provide financial support to CPTC students and programs to further the College’s mission and goals. Scholarship and grant opportunities are available to students who qualify.
Although many initiatives and priorities are college-wide ventures and supported by both CPTC foundations, some elements of a program may be established by a donor or stakeholder and funded by just one foundation. For example, as part of the CPTC Scholarship Program, a specific scholarship opportunity may be offered by one foundation, rather than both, according to the policies and procedures of the foundations. Similarly, donors may give to one or both foundations and direct their gifts to be used at specific CPTC locations, for residents of a specific county, or for specific programs, scholarships, or needs.
When foundation initiatives/programs affect parts of the CPTC service delivery area, the Altamaha Technical College Foundation serves Appling, Camden, Glynn, Jeff Davis, Long, McIntosh and Wayne counties, and the Okefenokee Technical College Foundation serves Bacon, Brantley, Charlton, Clinch, Pierce, and Ware counties.
CPTC trustees are unpaid volunteers who are committed to making friends and raising funds to benefit the College.
How Donations Help
Both foundations are 501(c)(3) nonprofit organizations established to support students and programs in their respective counties. As a result, academic and needs-based scholarships are offered to CPTC in-coming and current students. CPTC foundations also assist academic programs with equipment and special projects.
Recent changes in HOPE regulations will benefit many students, making more students eligible for financial assistance and increasing award amounts for others. There are, however, a number of students who continue to fall in the gap. When these students are deserving and economically disadvantaged, one or both CPTC foundations provide scholarship awards, grants, or loans - a special kind of "hope" - so that students can continue in their pursuit of valuable educational and career goals. The foundations' ability to continue student assistance in this manner rests with its donors.
Thank you for supporting technical education at CPTC through the CPTC Foundations!
