Sauk Valley Community College’s Impact Program has received a $5,000 gift from the Dixon Kiwanis Club.

SVCC’s earned-tuition Impact Program provides eligible students, who graduate within the college’s district, the opportunity to earn tuition and fees for up to three years at SVCC, or until they earn their certificate or degree – whichever comes first.  Over 400 such earned-tuition programs exist in the nation, and the workforce development initiatives from these programs are notable.  Data from communities with an earned-tuition program show an increase in wages, economic mobility, population and business retention and attraction.  For more information on the Impact Program, please visit svcc.edu/impact or email impact@svcc.edu.

The Dixon Kiwanis Club chose to support their students, their community, and their not-for-profit organizations that have benefited from 153 Dixon freshmen and sophomores who have volunteered more than 3,938 hours in Dixon since June 1, 2022.

“The Sauk Valley College Foundation appreciates the Dixon Kiwanis Club’s generosity in supporting the Impact Program.”  said Dr. Lori Cortez, Vice President of Advancement.  “This gift is truly an example of the club’s motto, ‘Serving children of the world’ by providing access to a brighter future for Dixon students.  The Dixon Kiwanis Club’s support is inspirational for both our local students and volunteerism in the Sauk Valley.”
