PVCC Educational Foundation Impact

We are focused on helping all students to realize their full potential as individuals, make better lives for themselves and their families, and contribute to the communities where they live and work. And YOU help make that happen!

Each year, PVCC benefits from the philanthropy of friends and supporters who are critical partners in our success. Gifts to the PVCC Educational Foundation enable the College to change the lives of students, meet local workforce development needs, and enhance the quality of life in our region.

A glimpse at your impact in 2023

Came together to make incredible things happen for PVCC.

Given in all sizes by individuals, businesses, and foundations.

Provided financial support for scholarships and financial assistance, facilities enhancements, program expansion, student success initiatives, professional development for faculty and staff and more. 

THANKS TO YOU, PVCC students are able to achieve their dreams!

"My degree from PVCC will allow me to create a life that would otherwise be impossible. I'm a first-generation college student and no one in my family has been able to live comfortably for generations. My aspirations are to create a substantive life doing what I love and allow my family to experience prosperity. Your contributions to the Educational Foundation quite literally allow people, who would otherwise not be able, to create a new life for themselves and their families."

-Samuel H., scholarship recipient

THANKS TO YOU, PVCC achieved new and exciting milestones in the past year!
