Program 1

Scholarships

During FY10, more than $100,000 was awarded in scholarships to deserving students attending Triton College.  Many of these awards were $250-$500, and made a significant impact these students' ability to finish their degrees or certificates.  The Foundation is very proud to award a number of scholarships funded annually by College alumni, staff, district businesses, local community government, and the families of former students and faculty.  Currently the Foundation Board of Directors is developing a new scholarship program designed for those students who just miss qualifying for federal funding but nonetheless find paying for college a true hardship for them and their families.

Program 2

Program Support

During the 2010 fiscal year, $108,000 was awarded to selected campus Departments and Programs to further their efforts towards students success, a pillar of success at Triton College.  Funds went, for example, to Engineering Technology to purchase additional components not donated for the Robotics program, and to the Music Program to add guest performers to the educational experience for their students.  Other College departments and programs were awarded funds for supplies, uniforms, class projects, and small equipment.  Because the funding to our college from the State of Illinois has been reduced so much (more than $20 million cumulatively over the past eight years), funding from the Foundation has been instrumental in assisting academic programs and campus activities with their focus on student success.

Funding Needs

The Triton College Foundation is focused primarily in raising funds for scholarships and other programs supporting Triton College.  In the fall of 2011 the Foundation will begin a campaign to develop a Culinary Education Center within the classrooms for the Hospitality Industry Administration program.  We will be working to raise approximately $500,000 for this effort.
