NMC Foundation celebrates success of Be What’s Possible campaign

TRAVERSE CITY — Last night, the NMC Foundation announced that Be What’s Possible, the Campaign for NMC, has raised $38.9 million to date from more than 5,000 donors to support scholarships, programs, facilities and the greatest needs of the students and the college.

The Be What’s Possible campaign was launched publicly on October 9, 2019 with a goal of raising $35 million. This is Northwestern Michigan College’s first comprehensive campaign with gifts to all areas of the college and its programs as well as planned and cash gifts counting towards its success.

“Our team has been honored to work with so many generous donors who are dedicated to supporting education and the arts through the NMC Foundation,” said Rebecca Teahen, NMC Foundation executive director. “Alumni and community members have stepped up in extraordinary ways to make so much possible. I’d like to extend a heartfelt thank-you to all who have been part of this campaign.”

People from across the country attended the virtual closing celebration on June 9. There’s still time to join this historic effort by making a gift to the NMC Foundation by June 30, 2021. Find out more at nmc.edu/give.
