GCC FOUNDATION CREATES $525,000 ENDOWMENT
BATAVIA -- The Genesee Community College Foundation announced Monday that it had created a permanent endowment fund of $525,000 as the result of a challenge grant posed five years ago by the U.S. Department of Education's Title III program.
Through five annual fund drives, each of which netted $85,000, the foundation qualified for the federal two-for-one dollar matching support of $70,000. This brought the endowment fund, used to help needy students, to $525,000.
