Employee Giving Campaign

During the campaign, 623 NWTC employees donated $97,427 to the NWTC Foundation, which supports scholarships, programs such as the student emergency fund, and educational initiatives across the College.

“NWTC employees care deeply about our students and they believe in the transformative power of education,” said NWTC Educational Foundation Director Crystal Harrison. “That 86 percent gave back to our students and the College is a testament not only to their generosity, but to their commitment to transform, strengthen and inspire our students and the community.”

The percentage of NWTC employees who give back remains significantly higher than the national average. According to the Council for Support and Advancement of Education (CASE), the median employee giving participation rate at community colleges nationally is 30 percent.

Since 2005, NWTC employees have given over $537,000 to the NWTC Educational Foundation.
