North Central College Fund-investing in a Brilliant Future one student, one dream at a time

It’s easy to think of the North Central College Fund as simply a budgetary need in order to operate the College on a daily basis. However, it’s much more than that. These unrestricted funds touch the lives of students from the day they arrive until the day they graduate. The North Central College Fund has an impact on their favorite and most inspiring professors. It helps fund the clubs, organizations and activities they are most passionate about including athletics, fine arts, WONC, and so many more.

Of course the most significant impact is more than 40 percent of the North Central College Fund covers scholarships and financial aid for all of North Central’s students.

Reaching our $1.5 million annual goal is a critical component as we wrap up the Brilliant Future Campaign and is essential in providing them with an education that presents opportunities within their reach to make the world a better place as community service leaders, artists, entrepreneurs, occupational therapists and teachers.

North Central College is grateful for alumni, parents and friends who make unrestricted gifts to the North Central College Fund. Your generosity is the reason why the College is able to provide our students with an exceptional liberal arts education through generous scholarships, distinctive academic opportunities, inspiring faculty and remarkable facilities.

Please help us continue to strengthen the foundation that will take us into a brilliant future. Make a gift to the North Central College Fund.
