2018 DCC Class Gift Dedications

Graduation 2016

What is a Class Gift?

The Dutchess Community College Foundation is pleased to offer graduating students, their families and friends and DCC faculty and staff a special opportunity to support the Class of 2018 Gift and submit a tribute for inclusion in the DCC 2018 Commencement Journal. Class gift dedications are words of appreciation written by graduating students, which will appear in the 2018 Commencement Journal (please see samples below). 

How much to participate?

Graduating DCC 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 a student, but a suggested amount commemorates your graduation year. Students who give a gift of $20.18 or more will receive a white philanthropy cord to wear at graduation. Philanthropy cordThe white cord shows your commitment to, and support of, Dutchess Community College.  Make your gift online, then schedule your philanthropy cord pick-up by emailing dccf@sunydutchess.edu. Your tribute of up to 200 characters will be included in the 2018 Commencement Keepsake that will be handed out to attendees at the graduation ceremony.

Can my parents and friends participate?

Family and friends of DCC graduates have the special opportunity to congratulate a member of the Class of 2018 and support the college. Write a tribute to your graduating student to be included in a special section of the Commencement Keepsake booklet. 

Submit your tribute below, along with your minimum gift of $20.18, to secure your spot in the keepsake journal! All proceeds go toward the Fund for Dutchess and support scholarships and programs for future DCC students!

The deadline for submission has been extended to April 27, 2018!

Every donation to this fund is important and has the power to change lives for generations. Thank you for your generosity and for sharing our commitment to Dutchess Community College students.
