INDIANAPOLIS – Ivy Tech Community College had one of the most successful fundraising efforts among community college systems nationwide in 2007, according to a survey conducted by the Council for Aid to Education. The 2007 Voluntary Support for Education (VSE) survey reported Ivy Tech raised nearly $11 million through Ivy Tech Foundation, its fundraising arm, ranking it third among U.S. community college systems.
“We continue to be honored by the investment so many have made in the state’s community college. Ivy Tech serves a diverse student population and the investment that is made by our donors is an investment in over 110,000 students and an investment in the state of Indiana. Though we are pleased to be recognized nationally we know that there is still much work to be done,” said Joyce Q. Rogers, Ivy Tech vice president of development.
The Voluntary Support for Education survey is the authoritative national source of information on private giving to higher education and private K-12 schools. The survey was submitted by 1,023 institutions.
