Double Your Impact with a Gift to the Student Persistence Fund!

The College has established a fund to support student persistence – a hardship fund, essentially. Dr. Kathy Birkett, Trustee, and Dr. Donna M. Carroll, Interim President, will personally match dollar for dollar gifts to the Persistence Fund, up to $20,000. Every dollar raised will help a student in financial distress; every active donor indicates confidence in the future of North Central College.
