The Foundation at WNCC was founded in 1971 to assist students in achieving their educational goals through several scholarship programs and has since expanded into an organization that provides support for students, faculty, staff, programs, and capital projects on each of our three campuses. Through the generous support of individuals, corporations, and other organizations, The Foundation has grown from nothing more than a dream to over $2 million in net assets to date. The Foundation is governed by a committed and active volunteer board.
Our mission statement affirms our belief in the importance of our role to assist in providing educational opportunities to all of our constituents:
The Western Nebraska Community College Foundation shall advance the mission and goals of Western Nebraska Community College by providing resources, both financial and professional to enhance scholarship opportunities, provide growth opportunities, to support programs and plan for the future through special and capital projects. This will maintain the excellence of the College by expanding access and affordability to a superior learning environment for students. We enhance the competitiveness of the college through funding state of the art facilities, scholarship opportunities, and academic programs for students. This will enhance the lives of community members, the quality of the college, and the communities it serves.
We serve the communities of Alliance, Scottsbluff, and Sidney. We serve the College. We serve the student. And, we take great pride in what we do.
