NHCC Foundation’s 40th Anniversary
To celebrate 40 years of changing lives through joy & generosity, the NHCC Foundation launched a special $40,000 Creating Opportunities campaign. Donations to the Creating Opportunities Fund will help the NHCC Foundation continue in its work of empowering donors to change lives through higher education. Several former Foundation board members are matching the first $16,000 given to this campaign. There is still $9,000 eligible to be matched! Your $20 donation becomes $40; $50 becomes $100; $100 becomes $200. You can participate and get your donation matched by donating at nhcc.edu/donate or contacting the Foundation team at firstname.lastname@example.org x0815.
Students, employees and visitors will soon be able to enjoy time in the Heritage Garden. You can be part of the Heritage Garden with a donation of an engraved paver or bench. Learn more at nhcc.edu/heritagegarden.
UnitedHealth Group Donation
NHCC Biological and Health Sciences received a surprise gift when a former NHCC associate dean reached out and asked if NHCC would like a donation of various medical supplies from UnitedHealth Group. When we learned we had to go get the items, Chemistry faculty, Peng Zheo jumped into action and filled his truck with various supplies. Thanks to UnitedHealth Group, Peng, and other faculty members for making this happen for our students! The value of the donated items is estimated at $38,924. (NHCC faculty are pictured below receiving the medical supplies donation).
