The Dutchess Community College Foundation (DCCF) is pleased to offer graduating students, their families and friends, and DCC faculty and staff a special opportunity to support the Class of 2021 Gift and submit a tribute for inclusion in the DCCF 2021 Keepsake Journal. 

What is a Class Gift and how much is it to participate?

Graduating students have the opportunity to show appreciation to their families, loved ones, fellow students and to DCC by submitting a class gift dedication. A donation of any size will make a difference in the life of another student, but a suggested amount commemorates your graduation year. Students who give a gift of $20.21 or more will receive a white philanthropy cord to wear with caps and gowns. Philanthropy cordThe white cord shows your commitment to, and support of, Dutchess Community College.  Graduates who make a gift will be mailed a philanthropy cord.
