The Sheridan College Foundation is an independent nonprofit corporation which raises funds from private sources to support Sheridan College projects and programs that fall beyond the College’s operating budget.
Our mission: ”Advancing student success through partnerships with the community and Sheridan College.”
The Sheridan College Foundation has been actively campaigning to help Sheridan College update and expand its physical infrastructure, modify and introduce programs and equipment to better meet faculty and students’ needs and provide financial aid for students who may not be able to attend college otherwise. This year over 430 students benefitted from Foundation scholarships.
The following projects have been a major focus of the Foundation in recent years and are in varying stages of completion:
- The new Edward A. Whitney Academic Center has been completed
- Caesar the Allosaurus replica has been installed in the Edward A. Whitney Academic Center and is ready to welcome visitors
- The Veteran’s Plaza was completed and unveiled on Memorial Day, 2013
- The initial phases of the new Thorne Rider Student Center and WYO Theater renovations and expansions have begun. Fundraising is ongoing for these two projects and for the Large Animal Science Center.
Foundation Directors have also worked with the College’s trustees and senior leaders during their strategic planning meetings in 2012 and have presented the College’s Our Plan to 2020 to the community and many individual donors since then. This plan outlines major Sheridan College facility projects from 2012 to beyond 2020. You may view the Strategic Plan and Facilities Plan by clicking HERE.
