VISIONS Making One Last Push to Reach Fundraising Goal

WINTERVILLE—It’s December, and Pitt Community College’s VISIONS Career Development & Scholarship Program is making a final push to reach its $1 million-fundraising goal before the ball drops in Times Square to ring in a new year.

Throughout 2019, the PCC Foundation has been working to raise $1 million to match a generous pledge from the Eddie & Jo Allison Smith Family Foundation. The Smiths, who have been extremely generous to PCC over the years, have promised to provide as much as $2 million to VISIONS by matching every dollar the PCC Foundation raises for the program this year with $2 from their charitable organization.

Started in 2004, VISIONS has provided nearly 1,000 Pitt County high school students with the support and direction they needed to receive their diplomas and move into higher education. One of those students, Curtisia “Tee” Canady,” is featured in the video above — and it’s very clear just how much she feels VISIONS has contributed to her success.

Please consider making a donation to the VISIONS Match campaign this month. Every dollar you contribute this December means the program receives $3 to continue educating and empowering VISIONS students for success.
