The DCC Foundation brings together alumni, donors and friends to support the College’s mission of preparing students to fully realize their potential and make a positive contribution to their community.
Foundation donors help make approximately $450,000 in scholarships available to more than 250 students annually. Some of this support comes through fun, engaging events like the annual gala or golf tournament. Sometimes a scholarship offered by a donor is the difference-maker that puts higher education within reach for a deserving student.
Additionally, the Foundation is the link between the College and its more than 40,000 alumni. The Falcon is a digital newsletter emailed regularly to DCC graduates featuring campus news, events and alumni updates from the across the country and beyond. Many grads have stayed in the Hudson Valley and have attended Foundation events or visited a class to share their knowledge with current students.
