WATC Foundation Gaining Momentum in 2013

“The best use of life is to invest in something, which will outlast life.”
–William James

2013 is looking bright as the WATC Foundation gains momentum and expands its efforts to support our community, our students, our employers and our College. The newly-restructured Department of Advancement & Employer Services, led by Jim Fly, is putting its best foot forward to ramp up further fundraising ideas, projects and campaigns.

WATC and the Foundation Board of Directors are focused on the future and are dedicated to building and nurturing meaningful relationships with our constituencies and connecting the college and students with resources to promote not only student success, but also program growth.

The goals of the WATC Foundation staff for 2013 include increasing the number of scholarship donors, increasing the amount of scholarship funding, expanding communication opportunities with donors and adding additional fundraising as a way to help meet these goals.

WATC is currently the fastest growing college in Kansas and is coming off of record enrollments for 2012-2013. The WATC Foundation provides critical student, faculty and staff support which enables WATC to produce a skilled workforce. We appreciate all those who give of their time, talent and resources to help the college and its students succeed.
