Gifts to the NWTC Fund allow the Educational Foundation to meet immediate student and program needs. Contributions fund initiatives that support student success, the College's top priority.
Your gift is vital to ensuring students are provided access to higher education opportunities that lead to high wage and high demand occupations.
Highlights made possible by donations to the NWTC Fund:
- 240 at-risk students have received Student Emergency Funding to remove obstacles that would have kept them from attending school.

- Funding for 437 low-income students for high school equivalency testing since 2006.
- Supported a Veterans Resource Center where student veterans can study together, socialize, and decompress between classes; and also have access to a broad range of resources that will contribute to their educational success.
