Waubonsee Community College opens the door of knowledge, sparks imagination and enlightens lives through learning. The Waubonsee Foundation strengthens this vision by providing opportunities for all citizens in our community to have access to a quality education.


Each year the Foundation raises funds to provide scholarships for deserving area students. For the 2017-2018 academic year, the Waubonsee Community College Foundation has awarded 299 scholarships totaling almost $280,000.

New Giving Society

In honor of Waubonsee Community College’s 50th Anniversary, the WCC Foundation is excited to announce the formation of The Vermillion and Gold Society – a recognition of annual donors. In this, the society’s inaugural year, an annual gift of $1,050 provides you with an invitation to join the Vermillion Circle. Other giving circles include the Gold Circle (gifts of $5,000 and above) and the President’s Circle (gifts of $10,000 and above).

Benefits and Recognition
The chief benefit of giving to the Waubonsee Foundation is the direct, positive impact you’ll be making in the lives of our students by providing much-needed scholarship assistance. Beyond that, members of the Vermillion and Gold Society will be listed in an online honor roll and receive a frame-quality membership certificate. As the society grows, we will continually look for other ways to honor members.

Would you consider joining us as an inaugural member of The Vermillion and Gold Society? If so, please contact the Advancement Office for more information.

How to Give

Without scholarship assistance, many students are not able to begin their journey toward success. There are many ways you can help them realize their dreams:

  • Honor or Memorial Gifts
  • Gift Planning
  • Corporate Giving
  • Matching Gifts
  • Cash Gifts
  • Credit Card Gifts (Donate Now through our secure online giving option)
  • Gifts of stock or other securities

Please consider helping us help more students next year. Together we can make higher education more accessible for those who need the most assistance. Thank you in advance for your consideration during this special year of celebration.

If you have questions or would like more information please contact the Waubonsee Community College Advancement Office.
