Employee Giving Campaign: Your Gift Matters
As employees, there are countless ways you impact students on a daily basis - inside and outside of the classroom. Your dedication and commitment to the success of our students makes a lasting impact on them.
We know that students have financial barriers that impact their ability to be successful through their educational journey. GRCC employees can help remove financial barriers by making a gift to the GRCC Foundation in support of scholarships. Employee giving sends a powerful message demonstrating our continued commitment to our students.
Your gift matters - every gift, any amount, anytime! Would you join us in making a commitment today to our students?
How can I give?
Payroll deduction gifts
It’s automatic and convenient, and your gift is spread out over 26 pay periods a year.
Examples of the impact payroll deduction has over one year:
- $5 per pay period = $130
- $10 per pay period = $260
- $15 per pay period = $390
- $20 per pay period = $500
One-time gifts are welcomed by check or credit card.
- Online – visit grcc.edu/Donate to make your gift by credit card or bank account.
- Checks – make out to GRCC Foundation and send to:

Why I give
“Students share their struggles: what it takes to just get to campus – the bus routes, the less-than-reliable car, child care and bosses that are not flexible with student schedules. I am proud to be able to give a little back to help those students succeed.” - Gary Ebels, Donor and Department Head, Criminal Justice
“The more opportunities our students have to be supported with scholarships and helped with other essential needs, the more likely we are to have successful students who accomplish their educational goals. Simply put: More successful students make things better for everyone who works at GRCC! My years here have been rewarding and satisfying. As such, it’s almost obligatory that I give back in as many ways as I can.” - Raynard Ross, Donor and Associate Dean,
Student Success and Retention
"GRCC has given me so much to be thankful for as a former student and a current employee - it's important to me that I give back and help students reach their goals. I encourage you to reflect on your journey, think about those that have helped you, and make a pledge to help the next generation pursue their academic and career goals. " Evan Macklin, Donor and Program Advisor
"Learning about the obstacles and barriers our students face, and hearing their stories, impelled me to make a donation to the GRCC Foundation through the payroll deduction option. If my donation can make a difference allowing even one student to achieve their goals, then it is worth it!" Sandy Gregory, Donor and Assistant to the Dean of Student Success
