Valencia Foundation Publishes Annual Report, Features Increased Donations

The Valencia Foundation 2011-2012 Annual Report is now available online. Highlights in this issue include many areas that were supported by Valencia employees!

  • Faculty and staff giving grew payroll contributions by 16 percent, in large part due to a campaign called “Give Up a Cup,” which is spearheaded by Valencia’s own Faculty and Staff Giving Committee.
  • Overall donations expanded by 31 percent and disbursements of funds to students, faculty and the college more than quadrupled from $1.7 million in fiscal year 2010/11 to $7.2 million in fiscal year 2011/12, which was the result of the $5 million gift for Osceola’s new building.

“Despite economic challenges and political turmoil, Valencia students are taking a leap of faith that their diploma will dramatically improve their opportunities now and far into the future,” said Geraldine Gallagher, Valencia Foundation President and CEO. “Our donors continue to nurture that faith by investing in those futures. I’m not sure you could make a better investment than in a human being.”
