Area of Greatest Need

When you designate a gift to the Area of Greatest Need, you allow the Foundation to direct your gift where it's most needed. Gifts to this fund allow the Foundation to respond quickly when special projects and opportunities present themselves, or when costly equipment must be repaired or replaced.



Investing in individual potential with a gift to the North Central Michigan College scholarship fund is one of the most rewarding ways to make a difference in the lives of our students. Gifts made to North Central Michigan College's scholarship fund help students reach their educational and career goals.

Student Resources

Many students face unexpected financial hardships that threaten to derail their education. Your gift will help students when—and how—they need it most. Give to the Campus Cupboard student food pantry or our Student Emergency Fund to help these students stay on their path to graduation.


Technology & Innovation

Your gift will provide professional development, equipment, and technology upgrades that will drive innovative teaching and learning methods, better serve our students, and respond to occasional disruptions and continuous technological change.

NCMC Athletes

Athletic Programs

Your support of athletics will help drive first-generation student enrollment rates, increase student success rates and provide the resources needed to compete at a high level. Your gift can be designated towards athletic scholarships or critical program needs.


Child Care Initiative

Join Leadership Little Traverse in making a difference in our local communities. By supporting NCMC's Child Care Initiative (CCI), your contribution will help create sustainable and equitable access to child care, which relies on a qualified workforce earning a living wage.
