FVTC Foundation

Giving That Works




Since its founding in 1976, the FVTC Foundation, Inc. has awarded over $7.7 million in scholarships and awards over 900 scholarships each year. 

We’re here to support the needs of Fox Valley Technical College students, programs and facilities. Students pursuing higher education face mounting financial challenges. During a typical year, the Foundation provides financial support to hundreds of FVTC students, helping them pay for tuition, books, transportation and unanticipated expenses.

Through the Foundation, you have the opportunity to provide financial and in-kind donations that contribute to the success of our students, and ultimately the quality of our regional workforce. Your contributions, whether as a friend of the college, an alumnus or alumna, or business or company, give students the chance to become self-sufficient by allowing them to further their education and start a career. Every gift and grant makes a world of difference.

Our Mission
