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. Normandale 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.

Current Foundation Priorities

In addition to raising funds for a wide range of scholarships, the Normandale Community College Foundation is currently focusing efforts on the following: 

  • Ending student hunger
  • Developing a mentorship program matching alumni and working professionals with students
  • Promoting a new initiative that prepares Black men to become K–12 teachers
  • Achieving a graduation rate of 50% or better for degree-seeking students
  • Strengthening our popular STEM programs and effective Academy of Math and Science.

Achieving these will require a substantial increase in contributed revenue and the number of donors and volunteers who join our cause. A foundation for community colleges often focuses only on scholarships, which to be sure is very important. But with your support, we’ll go well beyond that. 

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