You Care About Your Community.

Access to education has touched you. It has made a difference in your own career. It has been life-changing for someone you love.

Giving a gift to the Zane State College Foundation gives you a chance to change a life. To date, scholarships have been the most significant impact the Foundation has made at Zane State College. In the first award year, the Foundation awarded four student scholarships totaling $252. Now, thirty-five years later, the Foundation has awarded a total of 3,004 scholarships totaling over $3,100,000. In the 2018 academic school year alone, over $250,000 has been given to 175 scholarship students.

About The Foundation.

The Zane State College Foundation was established in April, 1984 by the Board of Trustees as the Muskingum Area Technical College Foundation. A separate and distinct corporation of the College, the Foundation was created to support and enhance certain missions and goals of the College. The Foundation was recognized by the Secretary of State and the Attorney General during July 1984, and was later officially incorporated and granted charitable trust status by the Internal Revenue Service. The goals of the Foundation are to provide student scholarships, to provide opportunities for the professional development of employees, and to assist in capital building projects and improvements.

All of this has been made possible through the generosity of our many gracious donors throughout the community. Thank you, for your continued commitment to our students.
