DVC Foundation

You Believe, They Achieve!

Graduation capsThe DVC Foundation is the philanthropic champion that provides financial support for hundreds of the 20,000 students who attend DVC each year.

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. 

Fulltime tuition at DVC is an affordable education for many students at $1,200 per year. However, for students with financial need or complex life situations, this tuition, coupled with the cost of critical wraparound needs such as books and supplies, transportation, and childcare make it seem impossible to achieve the education they so desire.

We hope you will consider partnering with us to reach our goal of $50,000 by December 31, 2018. Together, we can inspire our DVC students to achieve their dreams. 

Even though the DVC Campus is closed December 20 until January 2, all donations made online or postmarked by December 31, 2018  will be credited to 2018. If you have a question, please email Janice Bross at jbross@dvc.edu

  • "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."
