About NVCC's Foundation

With a 49-year history of supporting the college’s strategic initiatives through fundraising and community outreach, the NVCC Foundation supports the needs of the college through facilitating student scholarships, capital improvements, college programs, and student emergencies. The financial needs of the college cannot be met through tuition and state support alone; NVCC works with the community and businesses to ensure our students have an opportunity to succeed in today’s workforce.

Ways to donate

Ways to Donate

Helping a student graduate can be the most rewarding experience of your life. There are a number of ways you can work with the College Foundation and help our students succeed.

  • Scholarships: Your scholarship contribution keeps students in college and helps them graduate and reach their goals. Our community benefits from skilled workers and productive citizens. That's a powerful combination. 
    • Designate funds to students in a specific program or general fund. 
    • Support your favorite academic program or faculty.
    • Promote your company by supporting student success. 
    • Establish a new scholarship and honor a family member or loved one. 
  • Student Emergency Fund: The Student Emergency Fund is a critical resource to the Naugatuck valley Community College student during extraordinary times of crisis. The uniqueness and value of the Student Emergency Fund resides in its ability to respond to unanticipated students’ needs immediately.
    • Donate to the Student Emergency Fund
  • Tutoring programs: Our Academic Center for Excellence (ACE) is a tutoring center dedicated to offering our students the academic support they need; helping at-risk-students improve their skills, get better grades and finish college.
    • Consider supporting our Academic Center for Excellence
  • NVCC Student Food Pantry: serves NVCC students who may be struggling with food insecurity. The pantry opened on NVCC's Waterbury campus in February, 2018. It is funded through donations and grants. 
  • Naming Opportunities: Leave a legacy, honor a family member or publicize your business through a naming opportunity. There are naming opportunities available for classrooms, laboratories, outdoor learning centers, equipment and other select areas. Contact Angela Chapman to hear about the opportunities available for naming.
  • Fund a new piece of equipment: Upgrade our students to the latest technology. Can you imagine life without a computer? For some of our students, that's a reality. Now imagine funding a program that provides laptop computers, which are loaned to our neediest students. At NVCC we are constantly updating resources and purchasing up-to-date technology and tools. By investing in modern equipment and instructional materials you are ensuring that students achieve academic success and are prepared to compete in today's workplace. 
    • Designate your gift to the Equipment and Instructional Materials Fund
  • Matching Gifts: Your donation becomes larger and creates an even bigger impact if your employer has an employee matching gift program. To find out if your company has a matching gift program contact your human resource department or charitable giving office for regulations.
