The LAVC Foundation strives to help address the needs of Los Angeles Valley College and its students. Those needs change every year, but the Foundation has been successful in keeping in stride to try and address those needs. In FY 2017, the following needs came to the attention of Valley College. 1. Addressing the the programmatic and financial needs of students who come from the foster care program aka Guardian Program. 2. Addressing the rising personal needs of students who are hungry and homeless. 3. Working with the college to address the rising cost of books. 4. Work with the college's Workforce Development Program to provide more internships to our students. 5. Work to sustain the programs of the college's Family Resource Center, which operates solely on grants and donations. 6.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

1. Apply for a private foundation grant to assist the Guardian Program.
2. Conduct a Giving Tuesday Campaign that will provide assistance to the college's Helping Hands Project to address hunger and homlessness.
3. Apply for a state grant to allow faculty to attend seminars on alternatives on books at the higher education level.
4. Secure a grant from the California Community College Foundation to provide more internships for students.
5. Secure private and public grants to sustain the Family Resource Center.
6. The Foundation had a goal of raising $190,000 in scholarships.

The following were accomplished in FY 2017:

1. Secured a $25,000 grant to support the college's Guardian Program.

2. Helped raise $6,000 for the college's Helping Hands Project (HHP) by way of Giving Tuesday. HHP garnered attention and was featured by the Christian Science Monitor and the BBC.

3. The LAVC Foundation with the college to secured a $50,000 state grant to address the cost of rising books.

4. Secured a $100,000 grant from the California Community College Foundation to support for the "Valley Internship Pilot Program" (VIPP).

5. Secured a $10,000 grant from LA County to support the Family Resource Center.

6. The LAVC Foundation awarded $210,000 in scholarships and stipends to 344 students.

While the Foundation Development program is small in organizational standards, its staff and Board of Directors have a clear vision that is shared with Los Angeles Valley College. With a roadmap to success peppered with passion, our goals will be met.

Our approach for increasing scholarships awarded will be to approach current scholarship donors and ask them to increase their gift. We will also approach donors who give to other programs.

The workforce development office has the capacity to venture into the community and seek funding and our Foundation collaborates on relationship building as well as grant opportunities.

Capital outlay or funding will be important for conducting our campaigns. We will need seed monies to conduct our feasibility studies as well as possibly hiring a third party firm or individual to implement the campaign plan.
