DVC Foundation

What we do

The DVC Foundation’s mission is to continuously improve student success and foster lifelong relationships with our alumni.

How we do this

The Foundation provides financial support for students and for the programs they rely on. This support ranges from merit and needs-based scholarships, advancement of the college's academic and career programs, and public/private partnerships that provide career paths.

We manage the DVC Alumni Association, an active organization focused on connecting alumni to DVC, our communities, and fellow alumni.

Why we exist

Many of our students need financial assistance to make attending college possible - 23% of our students are the first in their families to attend college. Our students can have complex family circumstances where attending college is difficult. 

The Foundation helps support important student resources such as food, books and supplies, transportation, and childcare where needed.  Our funding also provides mentors, academic learning communities and financial support for emergency needs.

We believe that connecting alumni with students, faculty, the broader community, and fellow alumni enrich everyone’s lives and enable lifelong learning. DVC Alumni can be found throughout Diablo Valley, California, and the United States.
