When you contribute to Fox Valley Technical College, you help our organization provide quality education. Your contribution is commitment to "Knowledge That Works." We have a number of giving options - choose one that is right for you.
Unrestricted gifts allow FVTC to allocate contributions to the area of greatest need at the time the gift is given. Unrestricted gifts are truly valuable to the Foundation because they provide the flexibility needed to support unplanned projects, the increased need for scholarships, and important material/needs in the delivery of quality education. Unrestricted funds also provide resources to cover the cost of critical services not entirely funded through our traditional budgeting process.
Restricted gifts are gifts that are designated for a specific purpose at the time the gift is given. Restricted gifts benefit specific initiatives or projects of your choice. Funds may be designated to purchase needed equipment or supplies, fund curriculum needs, fund program expansion, or to fund scholarships for students to realize their educational dreams. It’s your choice!
Scholarships are one of our main initiatives. The FVTC Foundation, Inc. operates two scholarship cycles each year in December and May to award scholarships for all areas of programming. One application is completed by a student and their qualifications are measured against every award for eligibility. If you would like to join those already impacting the lives of our students, please contact Julie Coenen, Scholarship & Community Relations Manager at (920) 735-2478.
Major gifts are a specific way for individuals, organizations, corporations, or foundations to contribute to the College in a very meaningful way. Major gifts, generally over $10,000, make an immediate impact on the delivery of a special project or need at the College. Major gifts also fuel important community needs and initiatives involving Fox Valley Technical College.
As the campus and needs of FVTC grow, the FVTC Foundation, Inc. plays an important role in partnering private-funding of campus projects. Naming rights may be available for specific projects. For information on capital project needs, please contact the Foundation Office.
Endowments are an excellent tool that allows a donor to make a gift in perpetuity. With a minimum investment of $10,000 (can be pledged over multiple years), a donor can establish a named endowment to benefit a specific category of students or a field of study that has been chosen by the donor. Disbursements from an endowed fund are made according to the Foundations annual spending policy and begin the year after the $10,000 goal is reached.
Memorial & Honor Gifts
Memorial and honor gifts allow contributors to recognize someone in a special way. Memorial gifts are made in memory of family members, friends, or colleagues who have passed away. Honor gifts can be made during the holidays in honor of a colleague or in honor of a colleagues’ retirement. When such gifts are made, a special notification is sent to the family or the individual.
