THE ZANE STATE COLLEGE FOUNDATION

Reading is Fun Returns!

Zane State College is actively seeking volunteers to participate in a Reading is Fun Initiative (to take place in March 2023). This beloved event will return from the 50th Anniversary Celebration in 2019. During the 2019 Initiative the Zane State College Foundation, with community support, was able to provide children’s books to 1,615 students in 3 counties, at 22 elementary schools, and in 77 kindergarten classrooms. This neighborhood literacy event lets us share the joy of reading with students in our local Kindergarten classrooms. 

Starting in November 2022, the College will begin planning to bring this event back to our community.

Our Story

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.
 
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, over 3,500 scholarships have been awarded totaling over $4,000,000. 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.
