Ways to Make A Difference
Helping a student graduate from college can be the most rewarding experience of your life. There are a number of ways you can work with the NVCC Foundation to help our students succeed.
SCHOLARSHIPS: A contribution to a scholarship fund helps to keep students in college and prepares them for careers. You can designate to a general fund or a specific field of study. Endowed scholarships are also a great way to honor a family member or loved one or promote your company by supporting student success.
STUDENT EMERGENCY FUND: The Student Emergency Fund is a critical resource for NVCC students during times of extraordinary crisis. The uniqueness and value of the Student Emergency Fund resides in its ability to respond to unanticipated students’ needs immediately. Proceeds from this fund were utilized to support our students during the COVID-19 pandemic. This Emergency funding has helped keep students in school and on-track to graduate. As the pandemic lingers, this funding continues to be an essential lifeline for our students.
NVCC STUDENT FOOD PANTRY serves NVCC students who may be struggling with food insecurity. The pantry runs two programs. Grab and Go for students who need a quick snack during the school day and our Grocery program which provides food for students to prepare at home.
NAMING OPPORTUNITIES: Leave a legacy, honor a family member or publicize your business through a naming opportunity. There are naming opportunities available for classrooms, laboratories, outdoor learning centers, equipment and other select areas.
STUDENT TECHNOLOGY: Help provide our students the technology they need to succeed. Due to COVID-19 most classes have moved to online, remote learning. Many of our students do not have access to technology at home. Imagine life without a computer. No internet. Help us to provide our students with laptop computers and internet hotspots so they can continue their studies during these difficult times.
MATCHING GIFTS: Your donation becomes larger and creates an even bigger impact if your employer has an employee matching gift program. To find out if your company has a matching gift program contact your human resource department or charitable giving office for regulations.
