Recently, members of the Cody High School Class of 1949 gathered for coffee, just as they have off and on for over 50 years. Foundation Development Manager Carol Bell joined them to learn about their commitment to the students of Northwest College. “Ours is a special class,” said class member Jerry Lanchbury. “We believe in giving in whatever way we can.”
The CHS Class of ’49 Scholarship is a testament to the class’s dedication to giving and making a difference; since its establishment in 1999, the scholarship endowment has grown to $146,000. Thanks to the generous ongoing donations of class members, 4 CHS graduates receive financial support at NWC each semester. The CHS Class of ’49 Scholarship Endowment changes the lives of students, and continues to connect the classmates of the Class of ’49 through a shared purpose and love of giving.
In Recruiting Today’s Students, HOME MATTERS.
There’s no way around it – Northwest College needs to renovate its old buildings to attract students. Increased enrollment translates to increased revenue, and when local and state funding are in decline as they are now, enrollment revenue is more important than ever.
As part of our efforts to help the college build enrollment and continue productively transforming the lives of future students, NWC Foundation is launching a campaign to renovate the campus’s older buildings and ground. Colter Hall, the colleges’ oldest residence hall, will benefit first.
Remaking Colter Hall is our first step in returning NWC’s campus to a leadership place on the campus living frontier. Interested in helping?
There are many ways to give – including cash, real estate, securities or personal property. The NWC Foundation, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit corporation, can also help you with memorials, honorariums and matching gifts. GIVE NOW!
