April 29, 2020 – The Southern Crescent Technical College Foundation is pleased to announce the establishment of the Student Technology Emergency Fund to assist students as they transition to remote learning due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Many students are facing challenges with technology in order to stay connected with their instructors and complete their assignments since they do not have laptops or internet connections. SCTC students will continue to face technology challenges beyond this crisis as remote learning may become the new norm.
The Southern Crescent Technical College Foundation has made an initial commitment of $36,000 to the Student Technology Emergency Fund to purchase laptops that can be loaned to students in need. Additional financial support is needed to help SCTC students with their technology challenges as they acquire the academic, technical, and work ethic skills needed for meaningful employment. The Foundation is accepting online donations through the Southern Crescent Technical College website at www.sctech.edu/TechnologyFund or checks may be made payable to the Southern Crescent Technical College Foundation, 501 Varsity Road, Griffin, GA 30223.
For more information on the Student Technology Emergency Fund or to donate, please contact email@example.com.
Information will be forthcoming on how students will be able to access these funds.

It is classified as a 501 (c) (3) organization under the Internal Revenue Code.
