You can help Northern students with a short phone call.
In November, the Northern Foundation celebrated 21 years of philanthropy and funding for Northern New Mexico College with our annual Gala. For the second straight year, we sold out over 500 seats and raised much-needed money for our Community Fund. The night affirmed our shared vision that through higher education, communities thrive, and we once again proved that Together We Can!
At the gala, we answered the question, “Why Northern?” Whether it’s pursuing a degree in Engineering or finishing your GED, NNMC is at the heart of opportunity here at home in the Valley. Humbled by the vast New Mexico landscape, we at Northern maintain a special connection to our place, our cultural roots and our unique and diverse identities as we blaze a path for our students’ successful futures.
Recall what artist Frederico Vigil said in the video debuted at the Gala, “We try to walk on water…without sinking.”
It is in this spirit that I ask you to join us to make social change tomorrow on GIVING TUESDAY by calling us at 747-2147 or 747-2218 anytime from 7am to 7pm. Please consider making a generous gift to the Northern Foundation Community Fund which provides for the Northern Foundation Community Fund Scholarship, Innovation Grants for faculty and staff, student support, operations and external grants to promote education in the Valley.
On behalf of all of us at Northern, thank you in advance for your consideration of a gift. Your 100% tax-deductible charitable donation will help us continue our work to promote philanthropy, help our students and cultivate a college-going culture toward self-reliance and flourishing local communities.
#GivingTuesday is a movement to celebrate and provide incentives to give on November 29, 2016. This effort harnesses the collective power of a unique blend of partners-nonprofits, businesses and corporations as well as families and individuals-to transform how people think about, talk about and participate in the giving season. #GivingTuesday inspires people to take collaborative action to improve their local communities, give back in better, smarter ways to the charities and causes they celebrate and help create a better world. #GivingTuesday harnesses the power of social media to create a global movement dedicated to giving around the world.
