Employee Giving

Together We Can: Employee Giving

Employees are the heart of the College. Every day you make a difference. Your dedicated work as faculty and staff shape the lives of students, ensure the vitality of the College and strengthen our community. You play a key role in carrying out the College’s mission of providing an accessible, diverse learning environment rich with opportunities for our students.

An integral part of providing these opportunities is the support of The KCC Foundation. Your contributions have funded scholarships for students, campus improvement projects, classroom equipment, technology upgrades and the overall mission of the College.

With your support of the 2014-15 KCC Employee Giving Campaign, we can increase our margin of excellence. Our goal is for 100 percent participation, no matter how large or small the donation. You will receive a “KCC Donor” T-shirt to proudly wear and with recognition in the Foundation’s annual report and the KCC website.

Discover what your gift supports

The purpose of The KCC Foundation is to enable the College to achieve its goals. The support of private donors allows the Foundation to provide support to the College annually. Most donors choose to make an unrestricted gift, which is directed where the need is greatest. Other donors choose to restrict their gifts to specific initiatives.

Decide on a level for your gift

Giving is a personal decision. Your participation reflects a strong commitment to the College and its future. Employee giving is so important to the success of the College that we encourage all employees to give at any level. The power that each employee has to impact the future, even with a small gift, is tremendous! Having a successful Employee Giving Campaign is not only a wonderful example of the generosity of our family of employees, but it is a crucial speaking point when foundation staff is meeting with potential donors as well as a critical question on many grant requests. To be able to report that KCC employees are so passionate about the mission that they are willing to make a charitable contribution, even during tough economic times, makes a lasting impact.

How to give

One of the fastest, easiest and most convenient ways to make a gift is through payroll deduction. By completing the employee payroll deduction form, you decide how much to be automatically deducted from each paycheck and where your support may be designated. Payroll deduction will continue until the Foundation receives written notice from you to increase, decrease or stop deductions.
