Click for detailsThe Campus...Community...Vision campaign of the Casper College Foundation will raise the remaining dollars needed to allow the college to complete the Campus Master Plan. The plan, which includes five new buildings and a dramatic new campus plaza, provides a beautiful and functional new "front door" to campus while breathing new life into some of the college's most venerable and recognizable buildings.

Generous local taxpayer support, special state allocations, and careful management of existing resources has provided more than 90 percent of the needed resources, but participation from friends of the college is needed to finish raising the last $2.3 million to complete the largest campus expansion since the 1970s. Dick and Linda Wheeler of Casper have generously created a $1 million dollar challenge match going on right now through the Casper College Foundation. So please donate right now for the maximum good.

The campaign presents potential donors with a significant charitable deduction opportunity. For the 2014 tax year households with higher income levels will not see a phase out of their donation deductibility, making it a prime opportunity for individuals to support the college and receive the maximum tax benefit.

As an example, one CC Employee committed $25/month through the Payroll Deduction option, which adds up to $300 between now and December 2015.
She stated, "It's really important to support our college. I look at it as not eating out once each month while supporting a good cause and earning a tax deduction.

Naming Opportunities
The names of those who have supported Casper College in the past have become part of the fabric of the campus. The Tate Geological Museum, the Gertrude Krampert Theatre Complex, and the Werner Agricultural Pavilion are but three examples of facilities whose names memorialize those who helped make them possible, and that have changed the lives of the thousands of students who have passed through their doors.The six major construction projects on campus, as well as multiple renovation projects, provide numerous opportunities to honor a family member, pay tribute to a friend, or convey your own commitment to future students. Naming opportunities in conjunction with major gifts remain for facilities ranging from individual classrooms and lobbies, to exterior plazas and artwork, all the way up to prominent campus facilities, such as the Gateway and Music buildings.
