Annual Report | 2015-2016

Thank you for helping us make a difference in the lives of individuals and families within our community!

Since its founding in 1976, the FVTC Foundation, Inc. has awarded over $7 million in scholarships and awards over 900 scholarships each year.

We’re here to support the needs of Fox Valley Technical College students, programs and facilities.  Students pursuing higher education face mounting financial challenges and the Foundation provides financial support to FVTC students which helps them pay for tuition, books, transportation 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. Your contributions, whether as a friend of the college, an alumni, or business or company, give students the chance to become self-sufficient by allowing them to further their education and start a career.  Every gift and grant makes a world of difference.
