No student pays the true cost of his
or her education at Hudson Valley
Community College, particularly those
who pursue the nursing, allied health or
technology fields. For every $1.45 the
college spends to educate an automotive
technician, for example, it receives only
one dollar in tuition and government aid.
Those fiscal constraints – which squeeze
nearly two-thirds of the college’s
academic programs – prevent Hudson
Valley from expanding its offerings.
As a result, the college must seek private
funds to bridge the gap between
government funding and tuition
revenue if it is to continue its critical
role in fueling the region’s workforce.
To expand upon the college’s
accomplishments and help realize
its fullest potential in years to come,
the Foundation has embarked upon
The Promise of Our Region, a
comprehensive campaign to raise
money from the private sector.
This endeavor is the most ambitious
in the college’s history, and will afford
rewarding opportunities for individuals,
families, corporations and private
foundations to fund groundbreaking
educational initiatives, provide the
latest in classroom and laboratory
technologies, help strengthen
instructional quality, provide needed
scholarships and endow the future
of community-based learning
throughout the Capital Region.
