The Foundation

Our Top Priority is Student Success

The San Jacinto College Foundation has helped thousands of students achieve their goals, earn their certificates or degrees and become positive and productive leaders in our community. Founded in 1996 by community members of East Harris County with the mission to ensure that no one be denied a college education due to a lack of financial means, the Foundation has expanded its role to include a wide variety of programs and services, resulting in San Jacinto College’s number one priority – student success.

The Foundation raises funds through individuals, foundations, and corporate partnerships to provide programs, student success grants, and student scholarships. Last year, the Foundation awarded nearly 680 scholarships to deserving San Jacinto College students. The Foundation’s major fundraising efforts include four initiatives that benefit our students and community.

Our Success

Honor a Veteran, Help a Veteran Student

Veteran students need extra support as they balance college, family, and work. With our Centers of Excellence for Veteran Student Success, we meet these growing needs by providing services and emergency funding to help them be successful in their educational goals and in their transition back into civilian life. Through donations and the purchase of fully tax deductible name plaques on our Wall of Honor, we honor current and past veterans of all wars. Money raised provides emergency funding for veteran students.

Become a patron for veteran student success by making a donation or purchasing a plaque for $250 to honor a veteran.
