please share in this final stretch

Dutchmen, we are in the final stretch! Thank you for your support toward our goal of 1,500 donors!

Do you know any night owls? Or west coasters who love LVC and our students? If so, give them a buzz to invite them to make a gift of any size. If they need a little incentive, share that donors of $25+ can select an LVC webcam cover. Very handy!

         Go Valley!

Community service and the Dutchman experience

Nicole Flohr '20 and Jeanne Anspach Earnshaw ’69 at Mission Central HUB in 2019

β€œService shaped my time at LVC and continues to shape who I am as a person. I volunteered locally, and participated in domestic and international service trips as a Dutchman. I learned about social justice issues, connected with diverse people, and challenged myself to leave my comfort zone. By supporting service on Day of Philanthropy, you are empowering students, strengthening communities, and investing in a better future.”  

~ Nicole Flohr ’20, UN General Assembly Assistant at the US Mission to the United Nations
