Our Community Our College Our Future

Our Students!

One thing I've learned over the past 12 years about Dutchess Community College is that it is a campus of caring individuals. It's composed of people like you, who in your various roles believe in the college's mission-offering educational opportunities that prepare individuals to realize their full potential and contribute to a diverse and global society. Additionally, we encourage a campus that empowers all students to succeed and pursue a life-long passion for learning. And, we need your help today to make this a reality.
As you know many of our students come from backgrounds in which college is not a given, but a dream for a better life. Achieving that dream requires help from each of us in the form of our annual Campus Campaign. Read what one student wrote in a thank you note to a donor:
"I wish I was able to thank you in person to show my appreciation. I would like you to know that this has changed my life and will help me throughout my journey. Coming from a divorced family, money has always been a concern, and college was never a guaranteed event. With your financial assistance, I am able to succeed and pursue my education."
The Campus Campaign supports a range of important scholarships and funds that help students pay for tuition, books, domestic and international travel, projects and supportive services. Additionally, academic departments benefit from the funds raised through support for endowed faculty chairs, classroom equipment and other educational  enhancements that all enrich the student experience.
Together, we can make a significant impact at DCC, but more importantly, our united commitment will show our community, our colleagues and our students just how much we believe in our future. Recently one young faculty member started a new scholarship focused on the future and said, "I know I am young but it is important to me that I start working on my legacy at DCC now."
Whether you make a one-time gift, monthly gift on your credit card or opt for payroll deductions throughout the year, your support will help ensure that more students have the chance to see their dreams realized at Dutchess Community College.
Please join me in supporting Our Students!
Best wishes for a happy holiday season!

The Mission of the Dutchess Community College Foundation is to raise funds to provide scholarships and support the College's initiatives that will have a significant and direct impact on the students, faculty and staff of Dutchess Community College.
Support for DCC
Money raised by the Foundaiton is not meant to supplant state or county support, but to enhance the educational experience for our students.
Vital Link
Since Dutchess Community College opened in 1957, our more than 40,000 graudates have made their park on the community, county, region and beyond. The Foundation serves as a vital link between all alumni and Dutchess Community College. We are the Office of Alumni Affairs and we work to facilitate communication an dsponsor a wide variety of programs and benefits for alumni that foster a spirit of loyalty, involvement, and lifelong commitment to DCC.


With the support of our loyal graduates and many friends, Dutchess continues to be a leader in Community College education.
