History and Mission
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.
The Foundation is governed by an independent
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.
In addition to fundraising activities, the Foundation
establishes, supports, and directs innovative programs that are
essential to the college but have no other resources.
The efforts of the Foundation are made possible through the
continuing support of individuals, local businesses,
corporations, and foundations who are committed to advancing the
mission of Westchester Community College. Making a gift to the
Foundation will enhance the educational opportunities for future
generations. Donors can take pride in fostering the growth of a
student, facilitating the work of a faculty member, or advancing
arts and culture while creating tax benefits for themselves or
their family. Please feel free to
