The Gavilan College Educational Foundation has really taken off this past year! We now have an office on the Gilroy campus and have had the pleasure of welcoming several new board members. We hired a full time coordinator this past year, who has been working to connect with alumni, update the alumni database, and meet the community.
The strong positive feelings many community members have for Gavilan College, and the fond memories alumni share of their time here, have been a testimonial on how loved this college really is. The goal of the coordinator of the Foundation is to strengthen relationships in all the communities the Gavilan Community College District serves, and to invite the community to be a part of Gavilan College.
Our hope is to substantially grow our scholarship pool, bring in much needed resources to the college for our students, and support facility improvements. We are launching a major fundraising drive in the community where individuals can join the President’s Circle and businesses can be corporate sponsors.
It’s an exciting time at Gavilan College and we hope you will join us. Become part of a distinguished group of Gavilan College alumni, friends, and community leaders who provide the framework of support for the Gavilan College Educational Foundation by joining the President’s Circle.
Planning has started for our upcoming Centennial Celebration that is rapidly approaching during the 2019-2020 school year. Contact the Foundation if you are interested in participating in the planning process.
