Unforeseen financial emergencies are a key reason why students drop out of school. Durham Tech is one of thirty-one community colleges nationwide chosen to administer Dreamkeepers, a program that helps students facing short-term, unforeseen emergencies by providing much-needed financial assistance, along with financial planning tools and access to other local, state, and federal resources.

Less than $500 can make the difference between earning a degree and dropping out.

Since its inception at Durham Tech in January of 2005, nearly 150 students have received some type of assistance from Dreamkeepers. Of that number, 83% have enrolled the semester after receiving aid, and close to half have completed a degree, diploma, or certificate.

Our team is participating in the Great Human Race 2013 to raise $3,000 for Dreamkeepers. With your gift, we can continue to help students in crisis finish their educational goals.

You may give online or make a check out to VCD/Great Human Race, with Durham Tech Foundation on the memo line. Checks should be mailed to:
