Giving to the College: Westchester Community College Foundation
Making Dreams Possible
“We are all well aware of the fact that education and success go hand in hand. But what if a deserving person is denied the opportunity? How can we measure what is lost?”
– Chad Mesisco, class of 2012
Westchester Community College Foundation
Since its founding in 1969, Westchester Community College Foundation (a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization) has raised funds to meet college and student needs not covered by public funds.
Recognizing that public education is a public responsibility, the Foundation enables the college to continue to offer access to quality education and the skills for success through its fundraising and programmatic activities.
In addition to fundraising activities, the Foundation establishes, supports, and directs innovative programs that are essential to the college but have no other resources. These include:
- Scholarship program
- Volunteer program
- Faculty Excellence
- Native Plant Center
- Virginia Marx Children’s Center
Board of Directors
The Foundation is governed by an independent Board of Directors made up of approximately 50 distinguished community and business leaders who represent the social and economic makeup of Westchester County. This volunteer board directs the activities of the Foundation and ensures its funds are being used to support the Foundation’s mission.
