Moraine Valley Community College faculty and staff have donated a record amount of money to the Moraine Valley Foundation for the third consecutive year. During this year’s Employee Giving Campaign, they contributed $90,500 to help support student scholarships, student emergency funds and special college projects.

More than 620 employees made contributions, with 96% of full-time faculty members donating. This year’s campaign, entitled “Unstoppable,” raised the largest amount of money since the campaign began over 10 years ago.

“We are thrilled such a high number of employees donated to the campaign. Having 96% of our full-time faculty contribute is truly a testament to their dedication to their students,” said Kristy McGreal, executive director of the Moraine Valley Foundation. “It is rare to see this level of participation in an employee giving campaign, and it is inspiring to see the staff and faculty increase their contributions each year to support the work we do in the Foundation.”
