COA Foundation

An institution, like a building, measures its fortitude by the depth and strength of its foundation. College of The Albemarle’s (COA) success can be directly attributed to the diligent efforts of its Foundation, a nonprofit charitable corporation responsible for managing financial gifts and raising the private funds needed to support COA’s educational mission. Chartered in 1980, COA Foundation helps provide for COA’s student scholarships, new technology, capital projects, program enhancements, and faculty and staff professional development.

A Board of Directors, comprised of business leaders, friends and alumni, oversees the work of the Foundation and makes funding decisions. The Executive Director of Foundation and Development supports the Foundation in its efforts.

The Foundation is chartered as a 501(c)(3) nonprofit corporation. All gifts and donations are tax-deductible to the fullest extent allowed by law.
