JCC Foundation Events

The College Foundation annually hosts several events throughout the county and at the College's main and auxiliary campuses. Johnston Community College Foundation special events serve as a means of raising critically needed funds while educating the community of the programs and services offered at the College and recognizing the achievements of alumni, faculty, staff and students.

Breakfast Before Business. This event is held in February and in partnership with the Johnston County Association of Chambers of Commerce. At this event, the Business Industry Partner of the Year award is given.

Evening for Education. Formerly known as Dollars for Books, this event raises money for critical areas of need including, books, supplies, and scholarships for students. This event is typically held on a Thursday night in April.

Donor Appreciation and Scholarship Recipient Luncheon. This event usually takes place in September and recognizes our generous donors and scholarship recipients. It is held on campus in the Great Hall of the Tart Building. The faculty and staff of the year awards are also presented at this event.

Neal Lancaster Charity Classic. The flagship event of the Foundation takes place in October of each year. It pairs a Thursday night dinner, reverse raffle, and silent auction with a Friday golf tournament. This event has seen exciting growth and we now offer morning and afternoon tee times.

Sponsorships for Special Events

The Foundation's signature events cannot be done without your help. We welcome the opportunity to discuss sponsorship opportunities with you.

In addition to the Foundation's special events, the College has other areas in need of support.

Sponsorship for Performing Arts Series

JCC is unique because of its 1,000 seat Paul A. Johnston Auditorium on campus. On-going events include the Performing Arts Concert Series and Country Music Showcase or "CMS." Corporations, as well as individuals, are encouraged to become sponsors of these performances.

For additional information on any of these events or how you can participate, please contact the Foundation Office at (919) 209-2222 or email us at jccfoundation@johnstoncc.edu.
