Be a Hawk Owl Hero:
Help us say thank you AND raise money for your student group!


Did you know that individual people donate money to support scholarships, programs, and buildings at NMC? You can help us thank these generous donors AND raise money for your student group!

Members of your group can volunteer to help the NMC Foundation at select events throughout the school year. In return, we will reimburse your student group for the amount of time each of your members volunteered.

We invite you to volunteer for these activities:

Call alumni, donors, and friends of NMC and ask them to contribute to the NMC Foundation. No experience necessary! We’ll provide an easy phone-calling script and give you time to practice before you make phone calls. This is a great way to practice marketing skills, as well as a chance to talk with alumni and donors about their careers. Dinner provided!

  • Thursday, March 12, 2020, 5:30–9:30 p.m. at Founders Hall
