Support the College

Through the Alumni Association, you can participate in supporting and strengthening Delaware County Community College and, ultimately, be part of its success. Indeed, the College looks to its many alumni to provide leadership for future generations of students. With your support, students will continue to receive the education and skills needed to make a difference in our community.

As the private fundraising arm of the College, our Educational Foundation seeks to support the College's mission by raising private financial resources that are used to support creative programs and innovative projects.

The Foundation also works to serve the College by building endowment that ensures long-term success and by expanding partnerships with local businesses and industries. As an ambassador to the outside community, the Foundation seeks to communicate and further the College’s mission.

The Building Our Community Campaign from 2015 through 2017 celebrating the 50th anniversary of the College will focus on gifts that sustain our progress and growth. For first-time alumni donors, you can double your gift! An alumnus has pledged $5,000 to match all gifts by alumni who are contributing to the College for the first time. The first year of this program was a huge success, with 40 first time donors contributing more than $5,400. We are currently accepting donations as part of year two and hope you will consider if you are a potential first time donor.
