WDT Foundation

What is an extraordinary investment?

It is expanding opportunities. It is developing a robust community. It is believing that better lives and a stronger economy are created through education. It is… changing lives and building futures.

WDT has made an extraordinary investment in our community by helping students learn the skills and have the experiences they need to contribute to Rapid City, the Black Hills, and the state of South Dakota.

The WDT Foundation will provide resources to create scholarships, develop and strengthen programs, and build a campus community where students, faculty, and staff can be successful.

The Foundation invites you to support WDT in the following initiatives:

  • Scholarships
  • Program Development
  • Campus Community

WDT Alumni Association

The Western Dakota Tech Alumni Association represents more than 8,000 alumni across South Dakota and the country.

As an integral part of the college community, the association establishes, encourages, and maintains a mutually beneficial relationship between WDT and alumni. Additionally, the association serves as a resource group from which WDT receives political and financial support and from which the administration seeks input and advice.

We invite you to stay in touch. Let us know how we can help you. If you’d like to be involved in the Alumni Association, contact the WDT Foundation us at (605) 718-3061 or send us an email.
