DC3 Foundation Making Positive Changes With Donor Support
Apr 20, 2017
Dodge City Community College, the trustees, administration, faculty, staff, and supporting groups, recognizing the importance of acquiring new resources to fulfill its mission, are committed to an innovative organization sensitive to history and growing out of an appreciation of the past. This organization is known as The Dodge City Community College Foundation.
In 1997 a group of Dodge City concerned citizens led by Duane Ross, the first president, and Ed Fitzgerald, the first secretary, formed The Dodge City Community College Foundation, a non-profit charitable organization formed for the benefit of Dodge City Community College. The Foundation has helped many programs and building projects at the college over the years. Now, due to the State of Kansas’s financial tightening of higher education budgets which is affecting all Kansas colleges, the Foundation is going to play an even more important role.
Most all colleges and universities have turned philanthropy into a major helping hand for their institutions, through capital campaigns, scholarship drives, and more. Giving to your favorite college can be very beneficial to the donor, to current and prospective students, and the college. The only one that doesn’t benefit is the IRS.
Dodge City Community College is a very valuable asset to Dodge City and the surrounding communities as Kansas University is to Lawrence and Douglas County, and as Kansas State University is to Manhattan and Riley County.
Dr. Nolte, our Board of Trustees, Foundation Board, instructors, administrators, staff, students, and everyone that works and utilizes the college needs to tell our story and let everyone know just how important Dodge City Community College is to each and every one of us that lives here and in the surrounding communities.
