Fergus Area College Foundation

A nonprofit organization

17 donors

The Fergus Area College Foundation provides a solid legacy of support to the Fergus Falls campus of Minnesota State Community and Technical College. Through the support of donors, we provide resources to enrich learning, living, working and serving. In 2019-20 we awarded more than $140,200 in student scholarships. We also provide philanthropic support to promote innovative new initiatives, and upgrading curriculum and facilities. 

A Vision Begins

The Fergus Falls Chamber of Commerce’s “Committee of 100” organized and worked to bring a two-year college to Fergus Falls in 1960. Many of the college founders took the next steps to incorporate a nonprofit to support the college’s mission in 1963. Subsequently, Foundation board members went door-to-door in downtown Fergus Falls to tell the community about our college and their plans to organize the Foundation.

This good work continues. Today’s Foundation Board of Directors tells our story and shapes our vision in support of the Fergus Falls campus of M State. We’ve been extraordinarily fortunate in receiving continued scholarship support for our students through local individuals, alumns and businesses.

Sharing the Vision

A member of our board of directors once called the Foundation “an affair of the heart.” This is so right. Our relationships with our donors and our community keep us going through tough decisions, goals, fundraising calls, challenges and celebrations. Those very relationships are the most joyful aspect of our work, and we are always delighted to work with prospective donors in realizing their dreams.

As we revel in our successes and pursue our dreams for the future of our college, we will do as we always have. We will keep our feet firmly on the ground and support the Fergus Falls campus. Thank you to our community of supporters for helping to bring our dreams to life.
