Many of our students are just one crisis away from having to give up their dreams and drop out of school. Our donors help students to overcome financial challenges and to stay enrolled in college.

The WITC-Ashland Student Assistance Fund helps students in a variety of emergency situations with funding for things like food, gas, rent assistance, vehicle repairs, etc.

Every bit helps! You can make a difference in the lives of our students! Join us as we work to help our students focus on their academic goals! To donate, click the link below or text ASH ASSIST to 202.858.1233.

Other Ways to Give

  • One Time or Ongoing Donation

    • Give in a way that fits you best: your contribution can be a one-time donation or ongoing; both are tax-deductible for the calendar year in which they are given.

    • Make your gift online or by mail.

  • Annual gifts

    • Your annual gift supports a variety of scholarships and programs, in addition to helping the college respond to unanticipated financial needs.  Annual contributions to the general fund help to provide professional development opportunities; recognize student, staff and alumni achievements; fund alumni relations programs; purchase new equipment, and support other needs not covered through traditional college resources.

    • Make your gift online or by mail.

  • Donate to a fund

  • Create a scholarship

    • Create a scholarship to honor a loved one or to support a specific program or WITC campus. You can do this through an annual donation of at least $250, or by creating an endowment of $5,000 or more (interest off the investment is distributed as a scholarship each year). See our current scholarships and talk to a WITC Foundation Representative about creating your own!

  • Make an in-kind donation

    • You may choose to donate equipment or services to the Foundation. In-kind donations can be of value to the teaching and learning throughout WITC. Contact a WITC Foundation Representative for more information.

  • View the Donor Bill of Rights
    • Philanthropy is based on voluntary action for the common good. It is a tradition of giving and sharing that is primary to the quality of life. To assure that philanthropy merits the respect and trust of the general public, and that donors and prospective donors can have full confidence in WITC Foundation, we adhere strictly to the Donor Bill of Rights. We declare that all donors have these rights:

      1. To be informed of the organization's mission, of the way the organization intends to use donated resources, and of its capacity to use donations effectively for their intended purposes.

      2. To be informed of the identity of those serving on the organization's governing board, and to expect the board to exercise prudent judgment in its stewardship responsibilities.

      3. To have access to the organization's most recent financial statements.

      4. To be assured their gifts will be used for the purposes for which they were given.

      5. To receive appropriate acknowledgment and recognition.

      6. To be assured that information about their donations is handled with respect and with confidentiality to the extent provided by law. 

      7. To expect that all relationships with individuals representing organizations of interest to the donor will be professional in nature.

      8. To be informed whether those seeking donations are volunteers, employees of the organization or hired solicitors.

      9. To have the opportunity for their names to be deleted from mailing lists that an organization may intend to share.

      10. To feel free to ask questions when making a donation and to receive prompt, truthful and forthright answers.

        The text of this statement in its entirety was developed by the American Association of Fund-Raising Counsel (AAFRC), Association for Healthcare Philanthropy (AHP), Council for Advancement and Support of Education (CASE), and the Association of Fundraising Professionals (AFP), and adopted in November 1993.
