The Finger Lakes Community College Foundation is a 501 (c) (3) charitable corporation established to seek financial support for the College from the private sector.
Given the ever-increasing constraints and reduced levels of public funds, private giving is increasingly important to public higher education. Private contributions are vital to maintaining a standard of excellence at Finger Lakes Community College.
The Foundation assists the College with equipment purchases, special projects, faculty and special purpose campus events.
The Foundation also receives and manages scholarships that help deserving FLCC students with tuition, books and supplies, room and boards and transportation. Scholarships help recruit students to programs that support the workforce needs of the region. Emergency program offer options to students in urgent situations to access grants to defer costs so choices about staying in college or paying an emergency bill do not have to be made.
The Foundation is home to the CCFL/FLCC Alumni Association.
The Alumni Association develops relationships with alumni and students of the College to support efforts that benefit alumni and advance the mission of the College.
In addition, the Foundation owns and maintains three properties for the College’s use.
The 40-acre Muller Field Station on Honeoye Lake offers a unique learning environment where students participate in telemetry research, walleye culture and river otter studies. Muller, adjacent to 1,000 acres of state land, houses a retreat center and working fish hatchery. The East Hill Campus in Naples continues to develop its focus and wildland fire suppression training and conservation class offerings. On the main campus in Canandaigua, the FLCC Honors House program offerings expand annually hosting classes, meetings, events, and exhibits designed to encourage critical thinking, creative expression and mindful action.
