DVC Foundation

Student success is at the heart of the DVC Foundation

Graduation capsToday, the college’s student body reflects the growing multiculturalism and diversity found in California, with corresponding growing needs. Donations are critical for our students to reach their educational and career goals. With your help, donations to the DVC Foundation will:

  • assist the 23% of DVC students who are first generation college students;
  • provide mentors, academic learning communities and financial support for emergency needs;
  • additionally support educational opportunities for all students. 

Funding the future of our students requires the generosity and commitment from our valued donors. We hope you will consider joining our community. Your contribution enables dynamic learning experiences and supports key programs for students to become positive change agents in our community.


Our mission 

DVC Foundation's mission is to develop resources and relationships for DVC that ensure institutional excellence, and result in an exceptional educational experience for its students.

  • "Thank you for helping me fulfill my dream goal. As a first generation college student whose parents have no educational background, I never thought I would go this far with my studies. Being part of the Puente project has given me a boost of confidence to continue moving toward my goal of becoming a pediatrician. The DVC Foundation Scholarship will cover my Science and Math books when I transfer for UC Santa Cruz."
