Raising Money for Scholarships

Representing Community First Credit Union at the Waupaca Golf Outing were Dennis and Mary Hultgren, Mary Sullivan, and Scott Sauer. Dennis is also a FVTC Foundation Board member.

This is a very busy time of year for our FVTC Foundation in raising money to support student scholarships.  We just concluded two very successful golf outings for this purpose—one was held in Waupaca and one in Wrightstown.  Our Foundation staff and volunteers put tremendous energy into events such as these because they know that great results mean more scholarships for students.  And, along the way, the golfers and supporters of these events were treated to a very enjoyable experience with good weather as an added bonus.  Thanks to everyone who helped the Foundation raise more than $83,000 at this year’s outings to support scholarships for needy students.

To further support student scholarships, I’m pleased to be able to kick off the Foundation’s annual staff giving campaign at our All-Staff Inservice Program on August 20th.  This year’s campaign theme is “Give Today; Touch Tomorrow” and our staff campaign chairs—Rob Behnke, Mary Kay Van Handel, and Brent Schuettpelz—will be leading this effort through September 3rd.  It’s so important for our employees to show their support for the mission and work of the College by personally investing in the organization and in our students.

Last year our staff donated an incredible $128,000 to this campaign.  Because more students than ever need our help in making their educational dream a reality through scholarship support, we’ve got our work cut out to exceed this level of giving for the academic year ahead.  Every dollar of support truly matters—and really does change lives!
