Give to the Max Day 2013

 DCTC Foundation participates in Give to the Max Day


The Dakota County Technical College Foundation will participate in the fifth annual Give to the Max Day on Nov. 14. Give to the Max Day is an opportunity for Minnesotans to come together and show their support for non-profit organizations that work to strengthen their communities.

Last year alone, the DCTC Foundation distributed $336,639 and helped more than 596 students pay for tuition, books and emergency expenses. This would not have been possible without the continued generosity of friends, students, parents, alumni and business donors alike.

All gifts–no matter their size–are important as we strive to make higher education accessible to all.

“Not only am I proud of the work the Foundation does, I am thrilled to announce that DCTC has achieved a record high donor participation among faculty and staff this year with more than 85 percent making a gift during our 100% for Students annual fundraising campaign. That percentage is a testament to the support and dedication the college’s internal constituents demonstrate to the success of DCTC students.”

-Tharan Leopold, Executive Director of Foundation and Alumni

This year GiveMN is offering several incentives to encourage donor participation in Give to the Max Day. Friends of DCTC may support the DCTC Foundation and other local non-profits and schools for an opportunity to win prize grants up to $10,000 as top donation earners. During Give to the Max Day 2013, the DCTC Foundation will be eligible for prize grants in the form of hourly Golden Tickets–hourly drawings to add $1,000 to a donor’s gift, randomly selected from donors who give during each hour of the event. One donor giving to a non-profit and one donor to a school will be drawn in the evening for a Super-sized Golden Ticket and have $10,000 added to their donations.
