Information for KVCC Foundation
The Kennebec Valley Community College Foundation manages more than 30 scholarship funds and awards more than 200 scholarships to students each year. Each scholarship was founded by generous supporters who value the high quality education available at KVCC. Through donor generosity, student scholarships help to reduce the financial burden of attending college, allowing recipients to better focus on academic and career goals.

As a recipient of a KVCC Foundation Scholarship, it is important to take the time to thank the scholarship donor(s) for their support. Receiving a thank-you letter allows donors to realize the impact their scholarship gift has in helping a deserving student realize his/her potential.
Every KVCC Foundation scholarship recipient must complete a personally signed scholarship thank you letter which will be sent to the scholarship donor by the KVCC Foundation. Please take the time to create a unique and meaningful letter, your time and effort will be appreciated.
Students must also complete and return a Consent to Release Information Form with their thank you letter.
This form lets the Foundation staff know how your letter may be used. All scholarship recipients must consent to release their letter to the scholarship donor(s) in order to receive the scholarship funds. It is up to each student's personal discretion to allow the Foundation to use their letter, or excerpt of, in print, digital, and other forms of media.
While scholarship contributors do greatly appreciate receiving a written thank you letter, the saying "a picture is worth a thousand words" is also true. Please contact the Foundation if you are interested in providing a photo or video thank you in addition to your written thank you letter. The best way to reach us is: foundation

Thank you for your support."
