Nursing & Allied Health Professions Center
To Our Supporters
As TVCC considers urgent needs for our students and our community, it's clear that we must do more to support our healthcare providers and improve access to high quality and affordable care. An increasing elderly population, coupled with an aging and over-worked healthcare workforce, along with huge demands from the pandemic, creates an imperative for TVCC to expand healthcare programs and open more opportunities for students. With larger updated facilities, and state-of-the-art technology, TVCC can expand capacity of our current programs, and add new critically needed programs. The addition of a new Nursing & Allied Health Professions Center will support long-term economic impact in our region by building a skilled workforce, creating and retaining rural healthcare jobs, and providing educational and training opportunities for under-represented and priority student populations in our region. We invite you to join us!

Frequently Asked Questions
Right now, there are critical needs in our community that are not being met. For example, there is a significant overall healthcare worker shortage. Because of our successful leadership experience collaborating with the community to meet past needs, Treasure Valley Community College is well-positioned to address current and future needs through expanded programs and services. The College has created a thoughtful plan to collaboratively address community challenges in partnership with individuals, organizations, foundations, and businesses.
In addition, TVCC has already received $5 million in matching funds from the State of Oregon to help construct a new Nursing & Allied Health Professions Center. The Imagine. Invest. Inspire. campaign will help us complete our goal of raising the remaining funds needed to improve, expand, and transform healthcare workforce training at TVCC. We need to have all the matching funds raised by Spring 2023.
Educating students to meet growing workforce needs will not only meet current job demands, but it will also help grow the economy. Campaign initiatives focused on expanding, adding, and enhancing healthcare training programs will prepare more individuals for greater earning power in high-demand, high-paying jobs. Recent economic impact study results showed that TVCC creates a significant positive impact for the business community and generates a return on investment to its major stakeholder groups â€“ students, taxpayers, and society. In fact, the same study showed that 1 out of every 26 jobs in TVCCâ€™s service area is supported by the activities of TVCC and its students. The same study also showed a TVCC associate degree graduate earns $7,400 more per year on average than someone with only a high school diploma in Oregon. The impact of the increased earnings of TVCC alumni and the businesses they work for is currently estimated to be $74.9 million; adding and expanding programs will allow us to make an even bigger impact in economic growth.*
As a public community college, TVCC maintains a total operating budget of almost $20 million. Revenues include a blend of sources including state funding, student tuition and fees, grants and local levy support. These revenues are used for operations. The State of Oregon has already awarded TVCC with $5 million in capital construction matching funds to help construct a new building, but TVCC must secure the remaining $5 million match, plus additional building and technology needs by Spring 2023. TVCC has not received any additional state dollars for healthcare programs expansion or enhancements. Therefore, private resources and donations are needed to meet student and community needs, and support for this project.
