Outright Gifts

The mission of the ICC Educational Foundation is to ensure access to higher education for our community. Your gift will support scholarships, technology and programs to advance the quality and accessibility of our institution and our ability to respond quickly to emerging priorities. Your support is a vital investment in the future of our community.

Equally important to accessibility is excellence. Local businesses turn to ICC to train and retrain their workforce. Time and again, community leaders and business owners tell us that the quality of education students receive is as important, if not more important, than the degree.

Online Gifts

As a community college, we work hard to fulfill our role as “the people’s college” by providing access to high quality, affordable education for the people of our community. Any person with the desire to learn is welcome here and the opportunities we provide can change lives, not just of our students, but their families, as well.
