Winter 2023 Update

A year of giving and gratitude

It’s hard to believe that 2024 is just around the corner. 2023 was another year filled with ups and downs for students. With the rising cost of living, food security and housing all top of mind, the need this year was unlike any we’ve seen before.

As always, our students were a source of inspiration. They persevered through each challenge that came their way, and celebrated each accomplishment as they pursued their dreams.

As we approach the holiday season we’re taking the time to reflect, and thanks to your support we have a lot to be grateful for.

You have been champions in supporting emergency financial aid through Rapid Response, giving to food security initiatives, and providing urgent aid for the unexpected. Whether you are a long-time donor or gave your first gift, we hope you know the incredible impact you’re having in the lives of students.

As we prepare for an exciting year in 2024, we’d like to thank each of you for being a part of the NSCC community. Your unwavering dedication does not go unnoticed.

Wishing you a safe and happy holiday season,

- The NSCC Foundation Team
