WNCC Foundation makes goal, working on 2013 goal

Fiscal year 2012 was a big success for the WNCC Foundation. Executive Director Dayle Wallien told the college board Wednesday the Foundation raised $131,590, beating the fiscal 2012 goal of $130,000. In addition the Foundation set $135,000 as their goal for fiscal 2013.

Wallien says the Foundation is almost halfway to the 2013 goal after raising over $14,000 from the annual Fall Frolic alumni event and $45,000 from the inaugural Platte Valley Companies Marathon. Wallien gave thanks to residents from the entire region for supporting, participating, or volunteering during the marathon to help make it such a huge success.

Wallien says with in-kind gifts the Foundation brought in $650,000 and administered $376,000 in scholarships to WNCC students during the fiscal year that ended in July.
