Ways to Give

Friends, alumni, business partners and community and professional organizations can strengthen Wisconsin Indianhead Technical College programs and services by making cash or in kind gifts to the WITC Foundation.  You may wish to consider one or more of the following gifts:

Annual Gifts

Annual gifts to the WITC Foundation support a variety of programs and help the college respond to unanticipated financial needs.  Annual contributions to the general or unrestricted fund help to provide professional development activities; recognize achievements of students, staff and alumni; fund alumni relations programs; award scholarships; purchase new equipment; and support other needs not provided through traditional college resources.

Scholarships are an important financial resource for technical college students whose tuition costs often exceed $9000 per year.  Endowments and other funds established through private gifts to the WITC Foundation make it possible to award more than 365 scholarships each year.  That's a total of more than $158,000 per year provided to our deserving students!

Endowments provide perpetual scholarships from the interest earned on a fund principal of $5000 or more.  Donors who wish to establish an endowment may make a single gift or a pledge commitment over a period of five years.  Endowments can award scholarships for a specific campus, instructional program, high school or other targeted group.  Endowments can be named for the donor or in honor of a loved one or friend.  For more information about starting an endowment, please contact Craig Fowler at 800.243.9482 x5201.

Annual Scholarships are awarded from contributions of $250 or more.  Annual scholarships can be a memorial tribute, or can recognize the business, community or professional organizations making the donation.  Like endowments, annual scholarships can target a specific WITC campus, program, high school or other group.

Equipment & In Kind Gifts

Special Events

Special events including golf tournaments and a fishing contest are sponsored by the WITC Foundation and Alumni Association each year.  Held throughout the WITC college area, these events raise funds for scholarships and other college needs.  Sponsorships, gifts of cash or merchandise, and participation in the event all help to make these events successful.

Planned Gifts

By naming WITC in your will or estate plan, you can foster and continue the values important to you and your family.  In addition, planned and deferred gifts can provide maximum tax benefits to you and your heirs.  The WITC Foundation can show you how even a modest gift can significantly impact quality technical education in northwest Wisconsin.
