Lead Annual Giving

Your annual gift of $1,000 or more to any fund at the college makes you part of the President’s Club, NMC’s most prestigious annual giving society. Visit our President’s Club page for more information.

Leadership GIFT

When you make a transformational gift, you allow the college to evolve and you help guide NMC toward an ever stronger future.


Establishing an endowment fund is a way for you to make a permanent investment in the college that generates funds to be used, in perpetuity, to support NMC and other specific programs.


Giving planned gifts, such as bequests or life income gifts, can be a beneficial way to take care of yourself or your family now, and help NMC in the future. Visit the Biederman Society page for more information.

IRA Rollover

You can make a tax-free gift from your individual retirement account (IRA). Support what you love at NMC while avoiding income taxes on your distribution!

Matching Gifts From Your Employer

Do you work for a company or belong to a service organization that matches your charitable gifts? You may be able to double or even triple your impact. Sometimes even retirees are eligible!

Memorial and Honorary Gifts

These gifts can be an especially meaningful way for you to commemorate a loved one or celebrate a personal milestone while also benefiting NMC.
