FVTC Foundation

Giving That Works


We’re here to support the needs of Fox Valley Technical College students, programs and facilities. Students pursuing higher education face mounting financial challenges. During a typical year, the Foundation provides financial support to hundreds of FVTC students, helping them pay for tuition, books, and unanticipated expenses.

Through the Foundation, you have the opportunity to provide financial and in-kind donations that contribute to the success of our students, and ultimately the quality of our regional workforce.  Whether you are a friend, alumni, or business – your contributions give students the chance to become self-sufficient by allowing them to further their education and start a career.  Help us make college possible!

Meet Thong Xiong, a student in the Early Childhood Education program, FVTC Student Ambassador, President of the Hmong Student Union, member of Phi Theta Kappa and United States Veteran.  He is a three-time FVTC Foundation Scholarship recipient with the career goal of becoming an educator and counselor.  Let’s Make College Possible for Thong and his fellow students.
