WVC Foundation At A Glance
The Wenatchee Valley College Foundation exists to raise financial support for the students, programs and faculty/staff of Wenatchee Valley College and shall assist the college in achieving its goals through cultivating friends and garnering financial support.
The foundation was incorporated in 1973 and is a 501(c)3 not-for-profit corporation organized under Washington law.
The foundation supports approximately 100 scholarships annually. The scholarship budget for 2016-17 was $190,000 and $228,000 was allocated for 2017/18. Hear what some of our scholarships recipients had to say about how this support has impacted their education here.
The Knights Care Fund is a benevolent fund for students in need. It is supported by the foundation and managed by the WVC Counseling service. Last year the Knights Care Fund supported 25 WVC students. These students received funds to help with books, tuition, rent, living expenses and other expenses during a time when financial difficulty had them on the brink of dropping out.
Your gift supporting education can be designated to a scholarship of your choice or to the Greatest Need Fund. This fund allows more flexibility - the college's most urgent needs are identified and funds are allocated appropriately.
David Davin, our executive director, is happy to meet with you and describe how each contribution is impacting students, faculty, staff and programs at WVC.
Each spring, you are invited to a celebration hosted by WVC Foundation where students will share with donors how your support has impacted their education.
