With state contributions diminishing, private donations are a crucial component in the academic journey. Donations allow DCTC students to meet their financial needs and stay enrolled in school. Along with tuition, costly books and supplies, rent or mortgage payments, groceries, gas and transportation, childcare, and unforeseen expenses can derail students on the path to graduation. With your generous support, the Foundation provides students with financial resources to overcome barriers and reach their educational and professional goals. Every student forced to give up on their education because of a financial hardship represents a social and economic setback for our community as a whole.”
Donors provide scholarships, emergency grant assistance, and academic program support. These contributions help DCTC retrain displaced workers, offer a fresh start for individuals seeking self-sufficiency, and give students critical support during crisis. Our graduates bring technical expertise, creativity, and drive to the workforce and, ultimately, give back to the communities where they live and work.
