NSCC Foundation

Ways to Give

Your gift to the NSCC Foundation breaks down barriers to education and helps secure a strong future for Nova Scotia. Your generosity impacts students at NSCC campuses across the province and provides the resources, support and environment to help them succeed. When you make a donation, you make a difference.

Target your giving
