The ONE Campaign is a philanthropic effort to support new facilities on FVCC’s Kalispell campus to better serve students and the community.
For 50 years, FVCC has been a place for learning, innovation and creativity to improve and advance the communities we serve. We remain grateful for the culture of generosity and collaboration that has brought us to this day. Timing has never been better to take the next steps to strengthen the college experience for students and community members alike. We invite you to consider the exciting projects in this campaign to accelerate FVCC into the future.
– President Jane Karas
What will this campaign accomplish?
The ONE Campaign consists of two phases. Phase I involves the design and expansion of a new Library/Learning Commons as an addition to the Rebecca Chaney Broussard Center for Nursing and Health Science. Phase II involves the design and expansion of a new College Center. The projects will be funded through a combination of private gifts and revenue bonds and the college will not seek public funds.
Library and Learning Commons
A New Library and Learning Commons will offer a welcoming common space that encourages exploration, creation, and collaboration between students, faculty and the broader community. The design brings together the best of the physical and digital to create new technically advanced learning hubs. The current library space will become an inviting Student Center, creating a one-stop shop for recruiting and retaining students.
A College Center will feature a Performance and Lecture Hall with superb acoustics to accommodate exceptional educational, musical and theatrical programming. The Center will house a Multi-Purpose Activity Complex to meet the demand for student and community recreational opportunities, support health and wellness goals of the campus and community partners and provide greatly needed space for large campus and community events. The lobby of the Center will feature a secured Art Gallery to present exceptional artistic works of national, regional and local artists.
