The future leaders, tax payers, parents and citizens of Westmoreland County can be found right now walking the halls of our College, sitting in the classrooms and developing their futures here at Westmoreland County Community College. Many of Westmoreland's students can be expected to stay right here in our communities, building a strong and vibrant regional economy. Our students are the future of Westmoreland, Fayette, Indiana and Greene counties.

You can make an investment in that future right now with your donation to the Westmoreland Educational Foundation Annual Fund.

Why your gift is so important

A proper education is vital in today's workforce. Westmoreland County Community College has developed new academic programs to meet the job needs of area employers. Programs such as Nursing and Allied Health, Advanced Technology and IT / Computer Information Security, to name just a few of our 63 majors, are giving area residents an opportunity to obtain an education close to home and pursue careers in these fields. And we will continue to add programs as we recognize new needs and opportunities for our region.

Knowing that a skilled workforce is vital to keeping our business community strong, we established the Westmoreland - Advanced Technology Center that has become a key resource for the region's employers. Many area businesses have turned to the ATC to train or retrain their workforce to keep their organizations competitive in today's global economy.

And, with your gift to the Westmoreland Educational Foundation's Annual Fund, you can designate how you would like your funds to be used:

Donation categories

Scholarships: The Westmoreland Educational Foundation will provide more than 100 scholarships this academic year to deserving students. Without these scholarships, many of these students may not have the opportunities now available to them.

Under scholarships, you may designate the scholarship that you would like to support or you may select the General Scholarship Fund, which are awarded to students in all program areas. These scholarships apply to tuition, fees and bookstore expenses only.

Equipment/Technology: To keep pace with ever-changing technology and to make available all of the latest innovations for our students, Westmoreland is constantly upgrading equipment and laboratories. The ability to keep up with the latest technology is expensive, and funds are needed to continue to provide our students with resources to obtain the best possible education.

Greatest Need: Let us determine the area of greatest need as we look to the future and develop new programs.
