CVTC’s focus on providing innovative and applied, cutting-edge education for our students often requires us to invest in the equipment, supplies, and technology. Additionally, College initiatives, ranging from building projects to DEI education and training, require additional funding.
Chippewa Valley Technical College and Chippewa Valley Technical College Foundation, Inc., promote commemorative philanthropic naming of buildings, facilities, rooms, and equipment. This allows opportunities to recognize and honor individuals, businesses, and groups; helps to build relationships between the College, our communities, and supporters; and provides funding to support CVTC buildings, facilities, rooms and equipment. All commemorative naming opportunities will be considered through a vetting process to determine the propriety of the name in a public and educational context. A proposal of acceptance will be made by the College President and the CVTC Foundation Board of Directors’ Executive Committee to the CVTC District Board for final approval. All naming rights shall be approved for a specific term on a one-to-one basis and shall not be longer than the useful life of the property or facility, as determined by the College or Foundation. Each commemorative naming opportunity will be defined through a formal contractual agreement between the Foundation and all parties involved on a one-to-one basis.
