Unrestricted Giving

North Central College is grateful for alumni, parents and friends who make unrestricted gifts to the North Central College Fund.

Thank you for being part of our success!

Generations of alumni, faculty, staff and other friends have made our distinctive education possible by supporting the North Central College Fund with their unrestricted gifts.

Their generosity has bolstered the College’s ability to offer scholarships and other financial aid, provide enhanced classroom experiences and attract and retain great faculty. These donors have helped sustain our beautiful campus with its state-of-the-art facilities—soon to include a new Science Center—and have equipped the College to continue building an impressive legacy of great graduates.

While the North Central College Fund is critical to the annual operations of the College, the core of the fund provides support for student scholarships and financial aid.

Increasing the North Central College Fund from $1.5 million per year to reach $2.0 million per year is an important goal of the Brilliant Future Campaign. 

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.
