GIVE DAY

#strongtogether

GIVE DAY is the one day that alumni, families, students, staff, faculty, and friends unite to support one common goal: supporting KCC's mission—Enhancing Quality of Life through Learning.

100% of your gift will have a direct and immediate impact on KCC students.

We sincerely hope that you consider helping make KCC's GIVE DAY a success. Any gift, no matter what the size, can change lives.

Student Success Stories

When you donate to KCC GIVE DAY #strongtogether, you will be a part of a student's success story:

“My name is Kyla, I am a former Kankakee Community College student. I am proud to say that I am a three time scholarship recipient. I majored in Business Communications and received my Associates of the Arts degree in early 2021.

Community college has transformed my life in a way that I have yet to find words for. I started my journey as a homeless high school student. Carrying a past of abuse and neglect I had no hope for the future until KCC gave me a purpose.

KCC allowed me to further my education while I began my career. The flexibility of my education allowed me to work my way up at Nucor, from a 17 year old intern into the administrator I am today. I was so moved by what Kankakee Community College had to offer, that I am working towards becoming an adjunct professor as I continue my career at Nucor.

KCC donors have given me the foundation to build a life for myself, to build a future. I reflect on the time prior to my enrollment as a reminder of who I was, and who I can be. The meaningful donations from people like you could mean a new beginning for someone just like me. Through education we can empower each other and our community.”
