Campaign aims to engage 1,000 donors for WVC by Dec. 31
The Wenatchee Valley College Foundation has launched a “Year-End Donor Sprint” campaign in an attempt to engage 1,000 donors by December 31.
The Foundation gave $450,000 in support of Wenatchee Valley College last year for dozens of projects and hundreds of student scholarships. Projects include upgrading equipment and classrooms for programs like radiologic technology, welding and business computer technology; funding study abroad scholarships; internship scholarships; veteran work study awards; and continuing to fund the Knights Care Fund, which supports students in crisis.
“Right now, we’re helping to build a comprehensive education system in North Central Washington,” says WVC Foundation Executive Director David Davin. “Along with great K-12, career and technical education and two-year degrees, WVC is adding new applied bachelor degrees and state universities have indicated the potential for masters degrees. We are excited about our current impact, but there is always more to do and we need your help to make it happen.
Donations received during the Year-End Donor Sprint campaign will be used to modernize equipment, accelerate WVC’s adoption of four-year degrees, add new career and technical programs, and continue helping needy students focus on changing their lives by completing their degrees.
“We want everyone in this valley to stand up and show their neighbors, their friends, their family, that not only do they support our mission, but that they’re willing to do something about it,” Davin says. “$100, $20, or even $5 – it all helps. It’s not the amount, it’s the fact that everyone can contribute.
