Unrestricted giving provides the Foundation with the flexibility to respond to the needs of the College. Recent examples of program support include:

  • Support for the NCC Makerspace, a hub to empower creativity, critical thinking, and inventiveness among students of all academic disciplines.
  • Underwriting for the annual Common Read, which includes a series of free campus events built around a common literary selection. The 2018 Common Read was “Bullets Into Bells,” a collection of poems and responses about the impact of gun violence.
  • Support for Phi Theta Kappa honor society. NCC is home to the Alpha Iota Nu Chapter of PTK, recognized as one of the top chapters in New England.
  • Funding for NCC’s Honors Program. Honors is now an active program of study at NCC. The Foundation provides support for operational costs and academic activities that move the enrolled students’ toward completion of the two-year program.
