Second Annual Giving Day Set for April 6
Haverhill, MA (March 28, 2023) – Organizers of Northern Essex Community College’s second annual Giving Day are hoping history repeats itself. The day-long fundraiser and community pride event will occur on April 6, 2023.
All the funds raised will go to the NECC Fund, which provides critical support to the college’s areas of greatest need. Gifts to the NECC Fund are unrestricted, meaning they can be spent immediately and benefit a range of resources and programs that are crucial to the success of students, faculty, and staff. Historically, the NECC Fund has offered substantial support to some of the following areas: student scholarship, innovation, academic programming, career programming, and classroom resources.
Last year, 206 individual donors from the NECC community came together to raise $34,604. The effort smashed previous annual giving campaign records and made April 7, 2022, the largest single-day community fundraising effort in NECC Fund history. This year, organizers are hoping to reach 250 individual donors.
Donors who contribute $50 or more will be eligible to receive a special prize. And those on campus can stop by tables set up in the Dimitry Building on the Lawrence Campus and the Student Center and Spurk buildings on the Haverhill Campus for giveaways.
Giving Day is an annual event held on or around April 7. The date is significant: more than 60 years ago, April 7th was the date students could first register for classes at the newly formed Northern Essex Community College.
