2022 Alumni Fund Drive

December 1 to December 16, 2022

The Alumni Advisory Board at Dakota County Technical College is holding the 2022 Alumni Fund Drive, the Gift of Inspiration, from Thursday, December 1, 2022, until Friday, December 16, 2022. The college’s Alumni Advisory Board guides, supports, and engages with students to foster their success including leading an annual fund drive. This year’s drive is aiming to raise $10,000.

Starting December 1, 2022, we ask DCTC graduates to support and inspire students by donating to the Gift of Inspiration campaign. Funds raised by the drive will provide scholarships, emergency funds for students in crisis, free food through the campus Food Pantry, and more. The campaign closes December 16, 2022, so don’t wait.

Your support as a former DCTC student shows what’s possible with hard work and determination. Your support also provides students with a boost of confidence knowing that someone who has been in their shoes believes in them.

What’s more, your gift could inspire the spirit of generosity for years to come! Research shows that individuals who are on the receiving side of generosity often choose to pay it forward.

Please join the Alumni Advisory Board and fellow graduates this December by providing a Gift of Inspiration that ensures students have all that they need to reach their goals and graduate.


Student testimonials

“This scholarship means so much. It shows me I am on the right track, that someone I don’t know sees potential in my future. My end goal is to work at a marketing company, become a game designer or storyboard artist. Right now the sky is the limit and you have helped make that possible.”
— Michael E.

“By awarding me this scholarship, you have reduced my financial burden allowing me to focus on school work and not worry so much about how I am going to pay for school. I hope, one day, I will also be able to help other students in the same way you are helping me.”
— Ablavi A.


With a minimum gift of $50, you’ll be automatically entered to win one of several great prizes including waterpark passes, restaurant gift cards, T-shirts, and more.
