Community Works is Vassar’s annual giving campaign for local non-profit organizations. Funded by donations from employees, trustees, and students, Community Works has provided over $1 million in grants to over 50 different groups since its inception in 2001. Recipients are selected each year by an employee committee based upon nominations from members of the college community. And 100% of your contribution goes to support the local groups working to make our community a better place, because the college pays for all of the campaign’s administrative costs.
