A big event for NWTC – with the potential to positively impact hundreds of current and future students – is just days away!
Tell everyone you know about Give Big Green Bay, a 24-hour online giving event that takes place from noon on February 20 to noon on February 21. Ask your friends and loved ones to give to the NWTC Education Foundation, one of the many nonprofits participating in Give Big Green Bay.
Why give to the Foundation?
If you ask Ashley Noel from the Foundation, the answer is simple:
“We want to make college possible for all.”
Think about it. If a college education – whether that means a short-term certificate, technical diploma, or a degree program – could be possible for all, more people would be employed in careers with family-sustaining salaries. Just as important, more people would have the knowledge and skills to thrive in careers they love!
If you or a friend or family member have ever attended college, then you know how hard it can be to make ends meet while pursuing your goals. And you know the temptation to quit when times are tough can be strong.
Since 1970, The NWTC Educational Foundation has supported students and the College through life-changing scholarships and other funding.
“Everyone deserves access to education,” Ashley said. “We do what we can to remove cost as a student barrier.”
The great work of the Foundation would not be possible without the generosity of caring donors. A gift in any amount can make a big difference.
“There is a misconception that you have to give in big numbers,” Ashley said. “But if everyone gave $10 to $20, what a big impact that would make.”
Especially during an event like Give Big Green Bay.
Any donation made to the NWTC Educational Foundation through the Give Big Green Bay website, during the special 24-hour time frame, will be maximized thanks to the Green Bay Packers Foundation. The Green Bay Packers Foundation is providing a $250,000 matching pool of funds. NWTC’s Foundation will receive a percentage of those funds.
Mark your calendar for noon on February 20 and Give Big Green Bay!
