Phase II - Ag Classroom and Lab

Phase II of the project includes a 6,838-square-foot  facility to house a soils/science lab, instructional lab, classroom and computer lab, conference room, student collaboration space and more.

Our Generous Donors 

A capital fundraising campaign is underway and is off to a strong start thanks to an initial $50,000 gift made by Barbara Davis of Batavia in memory of her family’s farming history, particularly her grandparents Walley and Fannie Davis.

We're grateful to all of the campaign donors who believe in IVCC's Ag program, without whom the Agriculture Complex would not be possible.

Are you interested in making a donation to the Agriculture Complex Capital Campaign? Contact IVCC Foundation Executive Director Fran Brolley at (815) 224-0466 or email fran_brolley@ivcc.edu.
