As Chair of the Onondaga Community College Foundation board of directors, I have the opportunity to witness the incredible impact that financial support has on our students. Young learners whose parents are doing their best to help with college expenses, adult learners juggling the responsibilities of family, employment and school, first-generation students, refugee students – for these students and so many more, the dream of a college education would not be possible without the scholarship support made possible through our generous donors.
In the last few years alone, the foundation has experienced incredible support from area businesses and community supporters, not to mention College alumni, faculty and staff. Your philanthropic spirit and commitment to our students is evidenced by tremendous growth in the foundation endowment and most importantly, the record amount of scholarship funds being providing to deserving students.
To our donors I offer my sincere gratitude. THANK YOU, for allowing our students to realize their dreams and to transform their lives through the power of an Onondaga education.
