Legacy Banner with Students

From the first time a student walks onto our exquisite campus as a freshman until commencement day - when a graduate holds the well-earned diploma in their hand - the college journey is full of extraordinary moments.

As a dedicated supporter, you help students from diverse backgrounds succeed. All of us at the Dutchess Community College Foundation are grateful for your generosity.

During their time here, students achieve incredible milestones. But sometimes, they also face roadblocks.

One young woman you helped is Janine, a hard-working student who is also the single mother of five children.Janine's quote

"I've had some financial obligations come up that had to be paid that were not part of my monthly budget. When unexpected financial obligations come about, it's difficult," she said.

"I depend on my car for transportation to school and work, and for my children. But when my registration and insurance lapsed, I felt overwhelmed."

Thanks to you, DCC CARES was able to provide Janine with support. Now she is nearing completion of her associate degree.

Whether students need assistance paying tuition, or dealing with emergencies during their academic journey, your support enables them to succeed.

As we approach the end of the year, please consider helping students like Janine overcome hardships and pursue their academic dreams. Your gift today will help students with tuition or unexpected expenses reach graduation day ready for careers that give back to the world. Last year, thanks to our generous donors like you, 990 students celebrated commencement, confident and prepared to begin a fulfilling new chapter.

Your support impacts not only the lives of our students, but all those whose lives are enhanced by the work of our graduates when they pursue their chosen professions.

We are deeply committed to providing an exceptional academic experience to those seeking an education at DCC. The cornerstone of success for our scholarship program is the ongoing support we receive from donors like you.

We couldn't do this without you!

During this season of giving and receiving, I want you to know just how much you mean to each and every student at DCC. Thank you for being a generous supporter of education - it's truly the greatest gift!

I wish you and all your loved ones a joyous holiday season.

Thank you for your generosity,
