Investing in Futures

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 $2.8 million in net assets to date. The Foundation is governed by a committed and active volunteer board.

You may have your own unique reasons for wanting to support students at Western Nebraska Community College.  Perhaps you were the beneficiary of a scholarship when you attended school.  Maybe you recognize what a dramatic difference financial support can make in the life of a student.  You might want to extend the opportunity to attend a quality institution of life-long learning that not only helps traditionally underserved students, but also improves the local economy and keeps young people in our area.  It may be that you see student support as an investment in the future - of the region, the world, your industry, or your community.  You might be honoring a loved one.  The reasons for supporting students are diverse.

Whatever your reason, making a gift to support students at Western Nebraska Community College is one of the most impactful ways you can make a difference in the Panhandle.  Whether its through annual contributions, memorial and honorary gifts, the creation of expendable or endowed scholarships, or through programmatic support, every dollar you give makes a difference!
