The outstanding increase in generosity by alumni to support students during the GCC Foundation 2020 Annual Campaign gives us ample reason to believe in a stronger future for our community. Alumni giving more than doubled in 2020 to an impressive total of over $92,000 from 301 alum donors. Forty-one alums made their first gift ever, a striking 44% increase from 2019 in first time giving by alums. GCC Foundation Executive Director Regina Curtis ’86 reflects:
“We are deeply grateful for the notable increase in alumni giving this past year. It speaks to the recognition by our alums of the value of a GCC education that has been provided to each of them and by extension to our community these past six decades and their desire to ensure the opportunities they had are extended to those who follow. As a proud GCC alum myself, I know the trajectory of my career could never have followed the path that brought me here without my start at GCC.”
Because of GCC Alum and community generosity, together we raised $1.2 million from 907 donors last year to support our students and ensure that GCC remains an anchor of hope in our community.
