Ways To Give

     The success of the Victoria College Foundation has been and continues to be the generosity of its donors. The Foundation works to supplement the cost of tuition by garnering scholarship support, seeking grant funds for programs and projects, funding endowments for current and future students, and ensuring funding through planned giving. 

     Donations enhance student success.  From current needs to perpetual funding, all donor gifts make an impact.  Gifts can be designated for scholarships, academic programs, classroom enhancements or a capital project to name a few.  Endowments can be created in memory or honor of a special individual.  Those gifts designated for greatest need gives the Foundation the opportunity to provide funding where it is needed most, capitalize on unexpected opportunities, or meet unforeseen challenges.

Gifts made to the Victoria College Foundation, a 501(c)(3) organization, are tax-deductible as allowed by law.
