Catalog and Student Handbook

The Germanna Community College Educational Foundation, Inc. was established in 1983 to promote the growth and progress of the College. The Educational Foundation raises, invests and administers private funds in support of the mission of Germanna Community College. Subject to the provisions of the Internal Revenue Code, the Foundation is tax exempt and donors may deduct contributions as provided by the Code. The Germanna Community College Educational Foundation is registered with the State Corporation Commission of Virginia.

While State funding supports the basic mission of the College, there are many enrichments for educational excellence that Germanna needs to offer students. The Educational Foundation supports the College’s programs and initiatives within the policies of the State Board for Community Colleges and the by-laws of the Germanna Educational Foundation.

Individuals, businesses, and industries can help the College provide student scholarships, state-of-the-art instructional resources, faculty and staff professional development, and other enhancements. Cash gifts, securities, wills, trusts, insurance policies, and property are among the means through which donors can contribute. Unrestricted gifts are managed and administered by the Foundation Board of Directors; and restricted gifts are designated by the donor, subject to the policies of the Board.

For additional information or assistance in planning a gift, please contact the Foundation Office at (540) 423-9060.
