With the wonderful support that you have provided, I will be able to reach my goals and make my dreams come true.
-NIC Student and recipient of Foundation assistance

Established in 1991 in partnership with NIC, the Foundation team and its dedicated Board of Directors are committed to raising awareness and funds to support local students through scholarships and bursaries, equip classrooms with current technology, and ensure that the best possible learning facilities are accessible right here in our communities at North Island College.

Visit the NIC Foundation website to learn more about our vision of a future where students from every walk of life have the opportunity to pursue a post-secondary education, train for a new career, or develop employable skills to support themselves and their families.

Why Give:

Education has the power to transform lives, giving people bright futures for themselves and their families. With professional skills that are in demand locally, North Island College graduates thrive in our communities. They become our nurses, engineers, carpenters, social workers, business owners and more. They grow here, raise families and invest. Why give? With every gift to students and education, you make our community stronger today and for generations to come. Read more

What Can I Do?

Every gift to the NIC Foundation – from supporting new technology in the classroom to creating a bursary today or a planned gift for tomorrow – opens doors for students and paves the way to a brighter future. However you direct your generosity, we're grateful for your support and investment in our community. Read more
