Delta College Foundation

Foundation Board of Directors

The Delta College Foundation Board of Directors held its regular quarterly meeting in the College's Board Room on Monday, June 1, 2016.

To change lives by supporting opportunities and innovation at Delta College.

VALUES STATEMENT: Focus, Accountability, Integrity and Respect  (FAIR)

VISION STATEMENT: To be the primary choice of giving.

VISION IN ACTION STATEMENTS: During 2014-2017, we will achieve our vision and grow our resources by focusing on:

STEM education
in the region

* We will help our Great Lakes Bay Regional community see Delta College’s interdisciplinary approach to learning in STEM.
* We will support activities where academic concepts are coupled with real-world lessons.
* We will fund initiatives to get more young people engaged in STEM learning, while making connections to Delta College’s relevant curriculum.

Humanities and the Transfer Experience

By helping students to think and imagine, they will build the skills needed to examine ideas and values.
* Humanities at Delta College are creating students educated in social justice, sustainability and the impact of humanity on our society.

Building Student Scholarships

Our goal will be to increase the dollars available by increasing the value of current scholarship endowments.
* This may include additional contributions to existing endowments, establishing new funds or soliciting smaller donations to build our Foundation Student Scholarship Fund.
