NECC Giving Day
NECC’s 2nd Annual Giving Day was April 6, 2023
It’s all about the power of collective support. Thank you. for all who joined us for a fun 24-hour community-wide celebration of philanthropy and campus pride — and supported our students in the process!
What is Giving Day?
NECC’s Giving Day is a 24-hour fundraising effort that aims to unite alumni, friends, staff, faculty, and students toward a common goal: supporting the college and its students. In addition to encouraging support for the college’s annual fund (the NECC Fund), Giving Day celebrates healthy camaraderie and competition through a variety of themed challenges, prizes, and more. The funds raised have an incredible impact on the programs and services that are in greatest need of funding.
A Look Back at NECC’s Inaugural Giving Day
April 7, 2022 proved to be an exciting and historic day for Northern Essex. In just under 24 hours, we collectively raised $34,604 from 206 donors, far exceeding our goals and making our inaugural Giving Day the largest single-day fundraising effort in our annual giving history!
This milestone is an incredible testament to the work that can happen when our community rallies around a common cause.

What is the NECC Fund?
The NECC Fund is NECC’s annual fund, which provides support for the college’s greatest areas of need. Gifts to the NECC Fund are unrestricted, which means they can be spent immediately and can benefit a range of resources and programs that are critical to student success. Historically, the NECC Fund has supported student scholarships, innovative career programming, lectures, and integral classroom resources.
