The Alton College Foundation was set up 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 £500,000 which has bought equipment for the college, created a quiet garden for students, awarded Scholarships to 293 students and provided bursaries and grants of over £100,000 since 2010.
The Foundation is a registered charity and a company limited by guarantee and operates totally independent of the college.
Like all charities we only exist because of the hard work of our directors and staff and they are:
Nicky Branch, Chairman (ex Vice Chair of Governors)
Trevor Heley, Managing Director (ex Vice Chair of Governors)
Merula Frankel, Director (ex Chair of Governors)
Mike Baker, Director (Local Businessman / Alton Lions)
Peter Wilson (Local Businessman)
And last but not least...
Michelle George, Foundation Administrator
