Created in 1977, the Arkansas Northeastern College Foundation is one of the most successful two-year college foundations in the state. Directed by a Board of Governors with interest in providing Arkansas Northeastern College financial assistance, the Foundation directly helps students through a large pool of privately funded scholarships. Currently the ANC Foundation has more than $500,000 in endowed scholarship funds as well as many annually funded scholarships. Because many students’ problems have financial implications, the Foundation works closely with the Financial Aid Office and the Admissions Office to help students remedy these problems. Hundreds of students are helped each year through ANC Foundation scholarships. The ANC Foundation also works to build friendships and support for ANC in the community by hosting activities and events each year. Such involvement also increases visibility and awareness of ANC and the many opportunities it makes available to the constituency it serves.
