Honoring Loved Ones

“I cannot help but think about my life when I first arrived at WCC. I have stepped out of my comfort zone. I have grown in every aspect of my life. I have built bridges and made connections. And I have furthered my passion for science. There are simply no words that can capture how grateful and proud I am.”Melany Devila, Class of 2018

Tributes may be made in honor of or in memory of family members, to recognize friends, or to acknowledge significant milestones in someone’s life: graduations, anniversaries, significant achievements, etc. Gifts also may be directed to the Foundation by family recommendation at the time of a family member’s death.

Gifts are added to our “Commemorative Awards” fund and distributed as scholarships to worthy students attending Westchester Community College.

Acknowledgment of tributes will be made to the honoree, and gifts in memory to a designated family member with a special card from the Foundation. The amount of the contribution will not be mentioned.

Please be sure to provide:

  • Name of the person being honored or memorialized
  • Occasion for the gift, i.e. birthday, anniversary, death, etc.
  • Name, address and phone number of the individual to be notified of the gift.
