Your gift is transformational.

Our mission and vision for the future.

The mission of The North Shore Community College Foundation is to secure resources to improve, promote, and maintain access to a high-quality education. We believe that higher education is a catalyst and an agent of change for individuals, families and communities. We envision a community that recognizes the importance of educational opportunities and ensures that positive outcomes are accessible to all, regardless of economic or any other circumstance.


Our students live and work right here on the North Shore.

Our students include first-generation college students, recent high school graduates seeking an affordable pathway to higher education, working adults, parents seeking a better life for themselves and their families, veterans and active duty military, English language learners, and those interested in changing careers. 

Everyone deserves an opportunity to achieve.

You can help ensure that no student has to put their education — and their future — on hold. A charitable gift to benefit North Shore Community College is life-changing for our students, elevates entire families, and strengthens our region.
