Education Foundation

The Upper Valley Career Center Education Foundation was established in 2002 as a non-profit, tax exempt field- of-interest fund through the Troy Foundation.

The Foundation’s purpose is to promote programs and interests of the Upper Valley Career Center through financial support for high school and adult education program enhancement and development, student scholarships and financial assistance. 

The Upper Valley Career Center Foundation is responsible for the prudent management of the 
investments under the Upper Valley Career 
Center Foundation’s governance in 
conjunction with the Troy Foundation.

The Upper Valley Career Center Foundation continues to expand the number 
of scholarship and gifting opportunities which benefit Upper Valley Career Center students. All donations to the Foundation are tax deductible. Please contact the 
Upper Valley Career Center Treasurer’s office for additional information regarding ways to contribute.

We accept designated and undesignated donations and gifts, and establish those funds to meet the objectives of the Education Foundation and the intent and conditions specified by donors.
