In today’s world, we are offered choices at every turn. Do we buy vanilla ice cream or chocolate or one of 53 other flavors? Do we choose to watch a movie, a home improvement show, or a sports event on TV?
The Ivy Tech Foundation understands this and knows that when you make an unrestricted gift to the college you are showing your confidence and trust in our faculty, students, and staff. In essence, the donor is saying “yes” to the work we do.
Unrestricted giving is critical to almost every non-profit. At Ivy Tech Richmond, unrestricted gifts provide us the ability to be nimble when student, faculty, or programmatic opportunities arise during the course of the year. These types of gifts may also be kept aside to meet any critical emergency needs that come along.
We carefully plan ahead, considering every possibility, yet, issues and opportunities can appear at a moment's notice. Whether it's equipment that needs to be repaired or a sudden programmatic need, a scholarship, or emergency assistance to a student, unrestricted giving answers the need.
If you could change a life today, would you? Your answer, I’m sure, is yes. Ivy Tech Community College changes lives in ways as different as the needs of our students:
- Ivy Tech provides the type of education needed by a majority of workers.
- Fifty-five percent of all jobs in Indiana now require education beyond high school, but less than a four-year degree.
- Ivy Tech serves as a bridge for many students who lack the financial resources to enter a four-year college or university after graduation from high school.
- Ivy Tech is critical to local economic development. The very heart of Ivy Tech’s unique mission is the education, training, and development of the east-central Indiana workforce through credit programs and employer-customized training.
- Unlike most state schools, 93% of our students stay in Indiana. That means good things for business, our communities, and our economy.
Students come to Ivy Tech to get a job, keep a job, or advance in a job. They have a dream and your gift will provide the means to make it come true. Students’ lives are changed because someone shared a simple gift. You have the power to change lives, as well, with your contribution to Ivy Tech Foundation. Please consider supporting Ivy Tech students by making a gift to the Ivy Tech Foundation. Will you?
