The Dodge City Community College Foundation is dedicated to raising funds to assist Dodge City Community College with scholarships, projects, and programs. The DC3 Foundation is also working towards a strong alumni base and Foundation Friends who are also dedicated to the education and success of all future Conquistadors.
The Dodge City Community College Foundation is a separate 501(c)(3) tax exempt organization working to provide funding for student and college needs not otherwise covered by tuition and tax revenues. With the help of generous donors, the foundation helps students of all ages reach their dreams of careers, better jobs, or four-year degrees.
The foundation’s board of directors generously volunteer their time, talent, and resources to help sponsor events that directly benefit the lives of students at DC3 while creating a spirit of community. They host a variety of events each year, including an auction and a golf tournament.
Dodge City Community College Foundation scholarships have enabled students to learn new skills, earn technical certificates, complete two-year associate’s degrees and be prepared to pursue the remainder of their undergraduate studies at a college or university. We are proud, and exceedingly grateful, that DC3 Foundation scholarships have impacted the lives of thousands of DC3 students (formerly through the DCCC Endowment Association). These students come from all corners of the state and nation and share one belief – that education can change and improve their lives. Our scholarships provide financial support, but for many students being a scholarship recipient means something more. It means that someone believes in them enough to provide them with the financial resources needed to attend DC3. It means that someone else believes in their dreams. Giving to DC3 Foundation’s scholarships is an investment in individual students, but also an investment in the economic prosperity of the region. Students who graduate with an associate’s degree earn 33 percent more than those with only a high school diploma.
The DC3 Foundation is also proud of the many projects and programs that we have been able to raise financial assistance for. The continued growth of our college is an important part of educational opportunities offered for our students. State-of-the-art facilities, program improvements, and grant assistance are all examples of funding opportunities the Foundation works towards. DC3 Foundation’s purpose is to exist exclusively for the benefit of Dodge City Community College, its faculty, and students in the furtherance of the educational and charitable activities of the College. It does so through providing financial assistance to students, fiscal support for college programs, and occasionally running campaigns in support of needed college capital improvements.
