Save the date! The 2019 Gala will be held on Saturday, March 30.

The Dutchess Community College Foundation’s Annual Gala – Our Community’s Bridge to the Future was held on Saturday, March 24, 2018 at the Grandview in Poughkeepsie.

Angela Flesland ’06 and Mark Mahoney ’83 were inducted into the DCC Alumni Hall of Fame for their outstanding professional contributions and their commitment to our community. Cathy Temple received the Bernard Handel Community Leadership Award, which is awarded to members of our community who provide leadership in Dutchess County through volunteer work. Family Services received the Bridge to the Future Award, which was established to recognize individuals and organizations that distinguish themselves in working with others to enhance education, economic vitality, community wellness or civic responsibility in the Mid-Hudson Valley.

Join DCC in raising money to help students afford a quality education right here in Dutchess County. Help us honor our future Alumni Hall of Fame award recipients, the Bernard Handel Community Leadership Award recipient, and the Bridge to the Future Award recipient.
