About the NECC Fund 

NECC’s annual giving effort, the NECC Fund, provides critical support to the college’s areas of greatest need. Gifts to the fund are unrestricted, meaning they can be spent immediately and benefit a range of resources and programs that are crucial to the success of our students, faculty, and staff. Historically, the NECC Fund has offered substantial support to some of the following areas:

  •          Student scholarship 
  •          Innovative academic programming 
  •          Career programming 
  •          Classroom resources 
  •          And much more! 

Whether you are a graduate or friend, you can make a profound difference through a gift of any amount to NECC. Click here to make a gift now.

Recurring Gifts

In addition to standard giving options, our secure online giving page also allows donors to set up recurring gifts. Recurring gifts are manageable automatic payment installments made on your schedule. By contributing to the college on a monthly or annual basis, you can ensure that your gift will have a sustainable long-term impact on NECC and its students.
