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 can ear-mark their gifts for scholarships, food pantry support, emergency grant assistance, and academic program support. These critical contributions help DCTC retrain displaced workers, offer a fresh start for individuals seeking self-sufficiency, and provide students with immediate assistance during times of crisis and uncertainty. Explore the various ways you can support our students.
More than 90 percent of DCTC’s student body qualifies for financial aid and nearly one-third are from low-income households. To be clear, student success depends directly on your generosity and the support provided to DCTC’s Foundation.
Your contribution allows us to respond to the needs of students who are serious about their education. Our graduates give back to their communities and enrich the lives of the people they know.
Keeping students in school through difficult financial times often spells the difference between having a great job or standing in an unemployment line.
Our foundation proudly offers merit and financial need-based scholarships for students who excel in their field and/or face financial insecurity. DCTC is dedicated to Education for Employment and life-long growth. That's our mission and our students’ personal and academic success ultimately creates stronger, more prosperous communities.
