How can you help? 

Give BIG Green Bay is a day where the community can come together to help raise funds and awareness for nonprofits in the community. The NWTC Educational Foundation needs your help to spread the word about this amazing event! 

Around 40% of all students at the College are considered low-income. Receiving a scholarship or emergency aid can be crucial assistance to completing a semester or a degree. Your continued support makes college possible for someone who may not have believed that it was an option.  

For over 50 years the Foundation has been making college possible for students in Northeast Wisconsin. None of this would be possible without caring donors dedicated to creating change in the community. A gift of any amount can have a lasting impact on a student’s life.  

The College is excited and honored to participate in this year’s event. Give BIG Green Bay is an amazing opportunity for Brown County to come together and support our students, higher education, and the community. Your generosity can help make college possible, and help a student pursue their dreams!
