Moraine Valley Community College employees donated a record $90,000 to the Moraine Valley Foundation during its recent Employee Giving Campaign. Over 80% of the college’s full-time faculty and staff contributed to help provide student emergency funds and support scholarships. This year’s campaign, entitled Dreams Made Possible in an Impossible Year, raised the largest amount of money since the campaign began over 11 years ago.

“Employee giving has increased dramatically over the past few years,” said Kristy McGreal, executive director of the Moraine Valley Foundation. “We are thrilled so many employees supported students when it was most needed due to the challenges brought on by the pandemic. It clearly demonstrates their commitment to student success.”

The successful Employee Giving Campaign helped provide needed funds to the Foundation since some of its biggest fundraising events had to be downsized or cancelled due to COVID-19.

This year, the Foundation awarded more than 200 scholarships. In addition, it provided financial assistance to approximately 100 students for help paying critical bills through its Student Emergency Assistance Program and distributed $47,000 to over 180 students to help them purchase textbooks and lab kits.

“We are grateful to all the Moraine Valley employees who donated as a part of the annual Employee Giving Campaign. Their support makes a huge difference as we provide needed assistance to deserving students,” McGreal said.
