SANFORD - The Central Carolina Community College Foundation is pleased to announce that it is a 2021 grant recipient from the Pentair Foundation.

Chartered in 1988 as a non-profit, 501(c)(3), the Central Carolina Community College Foundation was established to support the strategic plans of the college by providing the additional resources necessary to advance its academic mission. The CCCC Foundation enhances the college's image within the community, broadens its base of support, and provides it with a measure of excellence through the foundation's support of the varied educational and student service program offerings.

"The generous grant from the Pentair Foundation will allow us to run a Summer STEM Academy to serve middle school students, designed to increase early awareness of STEM fields and develop 21st century skills, including problem-solving and teamwork," says Dr. Emily C. Hare, Executive Director of the CCCC Foundation. "Thanks in part to support from the Pentair Foundation, the CCCC Foundation can further support the needs of the college to advance its academic mission in areas not covered by the state budget. Contributions from the CCCC Foundation help fund the needs of faculty and staff and also provide financial assistance to students."

Pentair, a leading provider of water treatment and sustainable solutions, aims to improve the quality of life of people around the world by delivering smart, sustainable solutions that empower its customers to make the most of life's essential resources.
