The President's Circle
The impact of a quality education on an individual’s life cannot be underestimated. Education is the key to moving one’s personal goals forward, to seeking a better job or new career opportunities, and to becoming an informed citizen of the world. At the Kirkwood Foundation, with your help we extend the possibility of achieving an excellent education to more and more students. We know this changes lives.
The impact of an educated workforce on the region’s economic vitality is huge. Kirkwood not only creates our future workforce, but helps employers in our seven-county area locate and train those valuable employees through an array of career services. Through these efforts, the impact of your support strengthens the economic health of this area. Membership in the President’s Circle allows you the opportunity to support our students and enhance the success of the college’s academic and workforce development programs.
The President’s Circle is comprised of friends and alumni who make a minimum cash gift of $1,000 to the Kirkwood Foundation each fiscal year (July 1 - June 30). Your gift is an investment in the future of our community and will help support the students who are obtaining the skills needed to meet the challenges of our changing workplace.
The benefits of the President's Circle include:
• An invitation to a private campus reception each May - enjoy delicious hors d'ouevres prepared by our culinary arts students, meet the college leadership, visit with our students, and take a tour of our ever-growing campus.
• Quarterly e-newsletters from President Mick Starcevich - read about exciting news, including new college programs and initiatives.
• Invitations to exclusive college events - help us celebrate ribbon cuttings and the opening of new facilities.
• Recognition in the Kirkwood Foundation Annual Report and on the college website.
