NWTC Foundation Make College Possible

Home » About NWTC » NWTC Foundation Makes College Possible
Everyone in Northeast Wisconsin deserves access to higher education, regardless of their financial situation and life circumstances. Through the NWTC Foundation, you can help make college a reality for someone who may have not believed higher ed was an option!

You have the power to transform lives!

Individuals from all ages and backgrounds walk through the doors of NWTC:

  • Students proud to be the first in their families to earn a degree
  • Achievers determined to break the cycle of poverty
  • Parents balancing jobs, children, and studying
  • New high school graduates
  • Veterans fresh from military service

The common thread? A desire for a better future.

Around 40% of NWTC program students are low-income. Receiving a scholarship or emergency funding can be crucial assistance to completing a semester.

Other tax savvy ways

Donate Stock, Mutual Funds or ETFs

  • Avoid capital gains tax (up to 20%).
  • If you give stock to charity instead of selling it, neither you nor the charity have to pay taxes on it.
  • Maximize your philanthropic impact because the money you would have paid in taxes can instead go fully to the non-profit.

Donate from your IRA

  • Helps donors meet all or part of your RMD (Required Minimum Distribution).
  • Qualified Charitable Distribution (QCD) gifts avoid paying federal income taxes on the IRA distribution.

Donor Advised Funds

  • This is like a charitable savings account.
  • When you contribute to your Donor Advised Fund (DAF), you are generally eligible for an immediate tax deduction.
  • You can recommend grants to the NWTC Foundation at any time.

Please talk with your tax or financial advisor to get started.
