Building Futures … Building Lives … Building Hope!

You have the opportunity to change the lives of area citizens by enabling them to successfully pursue post-secondary education, achieve positive life outcomes and fulfill lifelong dreams. Our students include young people just beginning their college careers, as well as area citizens seeking new skills and opportunities to build brighter futures.

Investing in the Future

Today, private support is even more critical in providing the power that comes with unfettered access to education. State support for our community colleges has been severely declining over the past several years. As such, DSLCC receives only 39% of its funding from the Commonwealth of Virginia; the remaining funding continues to be supplemented by increases in student tuition and fees.

The academic programs at DSLCC are vital to the economic growth and improved quality of life in our region; each year, talented and deserving students enter DSLCC seeking new opportunities. For many, these opportunities would not be possible without your support. Your gifts to the Educational Foundation help area residents realize their dreams and foster the development of the region’s workforce by providing support in the following areas:

  • Merit and need-based scholarships for deserving DSLCC students
  • Focused support systems and essential tools for student success
  • Enhanced classroom technology, specialized equipment and training models for students
  • Innovative programming to meet evolving needs of area industries
  • Faculty grants for international and domestic travel to provide depth and richness to the learning environment at DSLCC

The educated community that results contributes to a strong, vibrant economy as DSLCC graduates become involved citizens, who work to improve their communities and beyond. Your contribution to the DSLCC Educational Foundation is an investment in the people and in the area in which you live.
