Annual Fund

Gifts to our annual fund provide direct financial support toward student scholarships and grants.

    Memorial Tributes

    Memorialize someone important in your life. Some existing memorials include monuments, structures, classrooms, benches, and trees.

    Matching Gifts

    Many employers have programs that may double or even triple your gift to the foundation. Check with your company's human resources department for details.


    Establish an endowed scholarship fund as a tribute to an individual, group, or in connection with a particular academic program at the college.

      Stocks and Bonds

      Realize tax savings by transferring stocks and bonds to the foundation. Contact us at 763-424-0815 or foundation@nhcc.edu for stock transfer information.


      Include the foundation in your will or trust, or designate the foundation as a beneficiary in your life insurance policy.

      In-Kind Gifts

      Gifts other than cash can be used directly toward NHCC activities. Our annual spring soirée, for example, allows donors to support the foundation with merchandise, services, and other saleable items.

      Event Sponsorships

      The college hosts a number of events with varying levels of sponsorship opportunities.


      Local businesses can contact the foundation office to setup valuable internship opportunities for NHCC students.


      You become the backbone of our success when you donate your time and talents to serve on boards, committees, and at foundation events.

      Your unrestricted gift enables us to address the greatest needs of the college and our students. You can designate your gift toward a specific program or purpose if you wish. The NHCC Foundation is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit. Your donations are tax deductible to the extent allowed by law.
