Kirtland Community College Foundation

The Kirtland Community College Foundation was established in 1972 for the purpose of soliciting funds from the private sector to augment and extend the financial base of the college.  As a separate non-profit 501(c)(3) organization, the foundation can solicit funds and receive tax deductible gifts for the benefit of the college and its community.  Any gift may be made through the Foundation.  The Foundation officers and members work closely with the college board of trustees and administration.  A member of the college board of trustees serves as a liaison to the Foundation.

Kirtland Community College Advisory Committees

Advisory committees for individual occupational programs at Kirtland provide information concerning competencies needed by employees, physical facilities and types of equipment used in the business or industry, technical curriculum content, and recruitment opportunities. Members also assist with promotion of the programs, evaluation of programs, job placement, and work experience. At times advisory members are instrumental in acquiring donations of equipment and supplies for occupational programs.
