Established in 2011, the Kanawha Valley Community & Technical College Foundation, Inc. provides an opportunity for friends of the college throughout the Kanawha Valley to support future growth and development of the institution. Gifts to the Foundation support scholarships, expansion and enhancement of instructional space, professional development of faculty and staff as well as student organizations all of which require resources well beyond the revenue provided by tuition and state appropriations.
A gift to the Kanawha Valley Community & Technical College Foundation, Inc. is an investment in the future of the institution’s students, its campus and the greater community which it serves.
(Scholarship applications will soon be available.)
KVCTC Foundation Scholarships are a vital source of merit-based aid for Kanawha Valley Community & Technical College students. Funds for this purpose provide the college an opportunity to recognize academic excellence among its current students and are an important resource for attracting outstanding students to the college.
Scholarship awards are made to deserving students as determined by the KVCTC Scholarship Committee. The minimum criteria for an unrestricted scholarship for new students are: ACT score of 22 or a 3.2 cumulative grade point average on a 4.0 scale from grades 10-12.
In cases where a new student does not meet these criteria, the Scholarship Committee may take into consideration other factors in awarding scholarships. For previously enrolled students, the criterion is a 3.2 grade point average.
Gifts to the Foundation
Gifts and donations are used in accordance with the donor’s wishes for scholarships, instructional equipment, needs of a particular department or program, general institutional support or unrestricted application as approved by the Board of Directors. The following are some of the institution’s current needs for which your tax deductible charitable gift can be designated.
An investment in education pays interest to the giver and to the greater community as well. Investing in the Kanawha Valley Community & Technical College Foundation, Inc. supports the success and future of our students, employees, campus, and local community.
Many opportunities exist to leave an education legacy to benefit KVCTC. If you would like to include the college in your estate planning you can designate your gift to be used immediately or you may want to endow the funds. When funds are endowed, the principal remains intact in perpetuity. A percentage of the interest earned on the endowment is paid to the donor’s fund on an annual basis. The Foundation provides a wide variety of options for donors to assign the future use of funds.
