Here is a list of vehicles for giving to the WCC Foundation:

Annual Fund

Gifts to the WCC Foundation’s annual fund help support the areas of greatest need. 

Annual Scholarships

Yearly gifts of $2,000 or more with a three-year commitment will create a named scholarship of your choice, which is renewable each year. Donors have the option of assigning criteria, such as designating a scholarship to students in a particular area of study. The Foundation holds an annual luncheon to honor donors and their scholarship recipients, providing the opportunity for donors and recipients to meet one another.

Endowed Scholarships

With gifts of $10,000 or more, donors may establish an endowment to create a permanent named scholarship. The yearly interest-generated income funds annual scholarships, allowing the endowment to benefit students in perpetuity. Many individuals, organizations, and businesses have created endowments as memorials or tributes to others. The Foundation invites donors to the annual scholarship luncheon to meet their scholarship recipients.

Memorials and Tributes

Many donors choose to make gifts to the Foundation in memory of a loved one, or to honor a person on the occasion of a special event such as a birthday or anniversary.

Matching Gifts

It's not uncommon for companies to double or even triple the value of an employee’s charitable contribution to the WCC Foundation. If your employer matches gifts, contact your personnel office for the necessary forms.

In-Kind Gifts

Non-cash contributions are approved through the College. Prior to their acceptance, appropriate college personnel will determine whether a need exists for the particular gift.
