Wondering How You Can Help?

Our goal at Normandale is to make a college education achievable for all students. The Normandale Community College Foundation provides financial support for students, programs, and services to help this become a reality.

We strive to make sure every Normandale student has sufficient food, safe housing, and other necessities. Scholarships help ease the financial burden. Specialized programs address barriers such as hunger, racial and class inequities. Emergency funds help students stay in school and get needed supplies.

When students have peace of mind, they are better able to focus on their studies. This allows them to take full advantage of the exceptional education we offer. It also means they're less likely to drop out.

Giving to Normandale provides the resources necessary to take care of the next generation. Students later return the favor as they become productive members of our communities.

We honor those who supported Normandale. In Memoriam.

Current Priorities

In addition to raising funds for a wide range of scholarships, we're currently focusing efforts on the following:

  • Ending student hunger
  • A mentorship program matching alumni and working professionals with students
  • The creation of a new initiative that prepares Black men to become K–12 teachers
  • Achieving a graduation rate of 50% or better for degree-seeking students
  • Leverage the strength of Normandale Community College in the areas of science, technology, engineering, mathematics (STEM) and secondary education

It will take focus, persistence, and a lot of hard work to achieve these goals. It will also take a substantial increase in contributed revenue and the number of donors and volunteers who join our cause.

Get Involved

Philanthropy is a powerful tool to achieve Normandale's goals. It connects our campus to the greater community. We need donors and volunteers to join our cause. Your generosity fuels the work of creating futures and inspires us to dream even bigger.

Working Toward a Hunger-Free Campus

NCC Foundation grants help fund Normandale's food shelf, the Campus Cupboard. Over 500 meals/week have been given out. Partnership with a local non-profit food relief organization has helped expand the offerings.

Creating Futures
