Employee Giving 2022

Help Strengthen Our School

Especially in the past few years, the strong and resilient College of DuPage community has demonstrated incredible perseverance and dedication to student success. The talent, knowledge, energy and dedication of everyone has made us what we are today, and are crucial factors in guiding us into the future. That shared focus is magnified by the internal community’s willingness to add to our ongoing efforts by contributing financially.

Gifts from our faculty and staff members provide needed financial support to our students, campus and programs. These gifts demonstrate to community members the commitment we all share to COD’s mission and ideals.

Philanthropy gains momentum from the inside out. The more who give, the more our commitment to COD is demonstrated to all of the college stakeholders and outside funding agencies – these combined efforts will power COD into the future.
