ANNUAL APPEAL/UNRESTRICTED FUNDS
Each year the Foundation funds projects that are critical to students’ success and the health of the campus. These are projects that are over and above the college’s normal funding capabilities. PRESIDENT’S CIRCLE
Introduced in 2010, The President’s Circle offers donors the opportunity to support Glendale College in an ongoing, sustaining way by contributing a minimum of $1,000 unrestricted gift annually. In addition to providing much-needed funds, members of the Circle will become associated with GCC through the benefits available to them. Among those benefits are:
- Your name on a President’s Circle banner displayed on campus.
- An invitation to a special lunch with the President/Superintendent.
- Invitations to special campus events and a private, behind-the-scenes tour of the GCC campus.
Money raised through President’s Circle will be available through grants for a variety of campus-wide projects in areas including arts and culture, science and technology, athletics and fitness, humanities and social sciences, and more. GCC faculty and staff can apply for funding on projects that meet the Foundation criteria and fulfill its mission.
President’s Circle membership is renewable each year for a minimum of $1,000 unrestricted gift. We encourage you to join this forward-thinking group of GCC supporters who believe in education and have chosen to invest in the future of our community.
