South Piedmont Community College Celebrates Third Consecutive Gift From Robert P. Holding Foundation

The Robert P. Holding Foundation has made its third consecutive annual gift to the South Piedmont Community College Foundation, bringing its total giving to $75,000.

“We are immensely grateful for the partnership and support of the Robert P. Holding Foundation,” said South Piedmont Community College Foundation Executive Director Maureen Little.

“The generosity of this outstanding organization is putting a college education within reach for South Piedmont students, and in doing so, changing the trajectory of our students’ lives. We extend our most heartfelt thanks and appreciation to the Robert P. Holding Foundation.”

On Dec. 6, First Citizens Bank presented South Piedmont with $25,000 from the Robert P. Holding Foundation.  In 2021, the organization established an endowed scholarship fund at the College with its initial $30,000 gift. That was followed by a $20,000 donation in 2022. Including the most recent gift, the Robert P. Holding Foundation’s total giving to the College is now $75,000.

Hank Dunbar of First Citizens Bank said the Robert P. Holding Foundation is proud to continue its commitment to South Piedmont:

“This Foundation knows well the impact that South Piedmont Community College has on students, business and industry, and virtually every facet of our community. It is proud to support South Piedmont’s mission of transforming lives through affordable, accessible, valuable learning experiences.”

Added South Piedmont President Dr. Maria Pharr:

“We thank the Robert P. Holding Foundation for its ongoing support. Together, we are making a life-changing difference for students and for our community.”
