The Alton College Foundation was established in 1999 to help the College provide facilities and equipment that could not otherwise be provided from government funds.


Since creation we have raised over £550,000 which has bought equipment for the college, created a quiet garden for students, provided a mini bus for the sollege, awarded Scholarships to 329 students and provided bursaries and grants of over £120,000 since 2010.


The Foundation is a registered charity and a company limited by guarantee and operates totally independent of the college.
