The NSCC Foundation, Inc., is a qualified 501(c)(3), fiscally separate from the College, and organized under the laws of Massachusetts. Its independent Board works to support programs that enhance and expand educational opportunity at North Shore Community College. Presently, the Foundation administers a $6 million general endowment fund, named scholarship accounts, and general-purpose grants.
All gifts to The NSCC Foundation, Inc. are tax-deductible to the extent allowed by current law.
The NSCC Foundation, Inc. was established in 1985 by a small group of business and community leaders to build necessary endowment through private fund-raising to ensure quality and accessible education to deserving students.
The mission of the Foundation is to raise funds for technical assistance, facilities, cultural arts programs and to aid financially burdened, but academically distinguished, North Shore Community College students. This fund-raising becomes more imperative as government continues to cut funds to education.
Since 1985, the Foundation has raised and directly distributed over $2,660,560 to more than 3,259 NSCC students.
