SMF-SCC Endowment

Founded in 1969, the Sandhills Community College Foundation, Inc. is a 501(c)3 non-profit corporation whose purpose is to promote the mission of Sandhills Community College in the community and seek financial support from the community. The Foundation ensures that donated funds are invested wisely and disbursed in ways that contribute to the ongoing excellence of Sandhills Community College. The SCC Foundation was the first community college foundation in North Carolina.

Since 1963, when Mrs. Mary Luman Meyer gave the gift of 250 acres of land on Airport Road in Southern Pines which created Sandhills Community College, the college has been blessed and enriched by the private support of its students, programs, facilities and capital needs.

In 2020, SMF created an endowment for the Automotive Technologies Program that continues to grow with each year


The Sandhills Motoring Festival was pleased to announce that our 2021 Memorial Day Weekend event raised over $20,000 for an endowment to the Automotive Technologies Program at Sandhills Community College. We would like to thank our sponsors, entrants, and supporters for helping us exceed and double our goal this year!
