Frederick Community College Foundation

The Frederick Community College Foundation, Inc. is a philanthropic network of advocates enriching the vitality and quality of life in our community by promoting access to higher education.

In partnership with individuals, organizations, and businesses, the mission of the Frederick Community College Foundation is to remove barriers to a community college education and provide financial support so all students can succeed and positively contribute to our community. The Rotary Club of Frederick’s Service Partnership Grant will be used to assist the FCC Foundation in providing scholarships to low-income parents and/or single parents enrolled in Project Forward Step, a counseling, information and referral program designed to meet the needs of returning adult students, with special services for single parents (including single pregnant women) and non-traditional age adults (age 24 and over) who are low income, out-of-workforce, or homeless.
