Ivy Tech Number One For Fundraising

Posted: Updated:
INDIANAPOLIS -

For the second year in a row, Ivy Tech Community College is tops in a critical category. The Voluntary Support for Education survey says for 2014, the school is the national leader in fundraising efforts among community college systems.

The survey was conducted by the Council for Aid to Education. It says the Ivy Tech Foundation raised over $23 million for the college, more than doubling the amount raised by runner-up Broome Community College in New York.

"We are grateful and humbled by the efforts our donors have made this last year. In these economic times, donations are what allow Ivy Tech Community College to continue to serve Indiana and change the lives of Hoosiers," said Thomas J. Snyder, President of Ivy Tech Community College.

Ivy Tech draws from a large body of alumni and donors who recognize the college’s impact on Indiana's economy, workforce, and community.

Over the years, the Ivy Tech Foundation has been able to provide over $100 million in support for students, faculty, scholarships, programs, activities and needs. 
 
"The support provided by our donors is an investment in our students and our state," said Ivy Tech Foundation Board Chairman David Findlay. "This recognition is a wonderful outcome of our recent success, and we’ll continue to pursue our ambitious initiatives and goals as we begin a new fiscal year."
