2009-2010 Annual Report - Ozarks Technical Community College by yaofenji


									History and Mission stateMent

OTC Foundation
The OTC Foundation was established in 1995 to help meet the growing needs of the College. At the time of incorporation,
Ozarks Technical Community College was in its fifth year of operation with 3,507 college credit students. Presently, college
credit enrollment is greater than 13,000 students and non-credit is more than 14,000 students. OTC continues to grow,
helping to meet the strong demand for job-skills education and workforce training in southwest Missouri.

Although the College is a state institution, it receives only 19.3 percent of its funding from state appropriations. The OTC
Foundation was organized to help the College meet its needs beyond that base funding by generating private support.

The OTC Foundation is incorporated as a not-for-profit 501(c)(3) corporation independent from the College. The Foundation
receives donations from individuals, corporations and foundations to enhance the quality of teaching and learning.

Mission Statement
The mission of the OTC Foundation is to maximize private gift support for the College while continuously laying the
groundwork for future fund-raising success, in order to aid the College in fulfilling its own mission of excellence in education,
research and service.

The Foundation board of directors elected its 12th President, Mr. Jim Moore, and
President-elect, Ms. Jan Robbins.

As we continue to increase our student population and to develop the types of training we offer, we continue to need your
support. Your gifts of time, money, equipment and other resources have had invaluable effects on our students. These
students will soon be graduates; full-time members of your workforce. These future employees appreciate knowing that the
community they serve has helped to make their education possible.

We are already seeing an increase in nationwide awareness of community colleges. Locally, the efforts of individuals and of
area businesses have a great impact on the success of institutions like OTC. More than anything, we want to express our
appreciation for the commitment to education demonstrated by the members of this community.

As you will see in the pages of this report, the OTC Foundation has continued to grow, which has allowed for unprecedented
assistance for our students as they work toward better jobs and better lives. The support of individuals and businesses in our
area has made it possible for more students to not only provide for their families, but to fulfill their dreams.

Thank you for making a difference.

opportunities to give

Ways to Support the OTC Foundation
Making a charitable gift to the OTC Foundation is an important and personal decision. The satisfaction of giving comes from
knowing that you are investing in the lives of individuals, as well as businesses and industries that benefit from an OTC education.

We invite you to invest in the “Imagine. Invest. Inspire.” campaign by considering the following ways to make a difference. From
a tax point of view, gifts of property may be more advantageous than cash gifts because you can make a larger gift at less cost. The
information provided below may be useful, but you should not consider it legal or tax advice. You should contact your attorney,
tax advisor, or accountant for details. Only you can decide when and how best to contribute.

Ways to Give
   • Unrestricted Contributions: (Contributions can be made to the area of greatest need for student support at the college.)
   • Restricted Contributions: (Contributions can be made to a specific area of the college, such as a departmental, named or endowed scholarship fund.)
   • Named Gifts: (Contributions can be made to establish a new scholarship in two ways)
       o Donors can give an annual gift of $1,000 or more per year for multiple years. This may be done in one’s own name or to honor or
         memorialize another individual.
       o Donors can establish an endowed scholarship with a minimum initial investment of $10,000. The fund can be in your name, the
         names of you and your spouse or the name of another family member, friend or colleague. Each investment will support
         Ozarks Technical Community College students or programs for eternity.

Types of Contributions
   •   Cash, check or credit card
   •   Appreciated assets such as stocks, bonds, mutual fund distributions
   •   Personal property such as equipment, art, vehicles or furnishings
   •   Matching gift
   •   A planned gift, such as:
       o   Bequest
       o   Real estate
       o   Life insurance
       o   Retirement plan
       o   Charitable gift annuity
       o   Charitable remainder trust
       o   Charitable lead trust

Donors are recognized for their gifts to the College in the OTC Foundation annual report. Gifts and pledge payments received
between July 1, 2008, and June 30, 2009, are included in this report. Donors who have made a planned or endowed gift to
support Ozarks Technical Community College will also be recognized at our Donar Recognition event.

The OTC Foundation held its 2nd annual Golf Tournament – netting more than
$17,000 to assist with student scholarships.
