Donor Stewardship

“As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them.”  John F. Kennedy

Thank You.  Your generosity enables Jefferson Community College to continue the teaching, learning and service that makes a difference here in the North Country and around the world.  With your support, we are collectively building a College for today’s students and those for generations to come.

We recognize that your gift, at whatever level you are giving, is a significant contribution.  Jefferson deeply values our supporters and recognition of your gift is a top priority.

In an effort to not just say “thank you,” but to show you our gratitude, donor-focused stewardship is achieved at Jefferson Community College through stewardship activities including timely gift acknowledgement, reporting, donor recognition, and donor appreciation activities and events.

Acknowledgement:  JCC is committed to the timely acknowledgement of every gift according to its level and type.  Gifts of $20,000 and above to any area of the College are acknowledged by a letter signed by the President of the College, letting the donor know our gratitude for their financial support and that the gift will be used according to their stated wishes and expectations.  Receipt of Memorial or Honorary gifts are shared with identified family members and friends, however the amount of your gift will be kept strictly confidential.  Official gift receipts are sent to all donors at any level of giving, along with an appropriate thank you.  Donor and alumni participation is our highest priority.

Reporting Each Fall JCC creates a Report to the Community providing information on many areas of the College, including scholarship award activity and including an Honor Roll of donors for the year.

Recognition JCC greatly appreciates the support of our alumni, friends, students, parents, faculty and staff.  Every gift to JCC helps to ensure that we can continue to provide an affordable, quality education for our students.  In recognition of this generosity, contributions at all levels are recognized by the College in our virtual donor wall; the physical donor wall in the Jules Center on campus and in the annual Report to the Community.  In addition, JCC offers special recognition for certain types of gifts through its leadership societies and naming opportunities.

Appreciation: Each year JCC hosts several donor appreciation activities and events.  In Spring of each year, the JCC Foundation hosts a Scholars Reception where scholarship sponsors are able to meet their student scholarship recipients.  During the year, scholarship sponsors receive a thank you letter from their students, as well as various other notes and holiday wishes throughout the academic year.
