We make it easy to give

Gifts to the Northwest College Foundation do amazing things for our students and the institution.

Many donors give because their NWC experience changed their lives or the lives of loved ones. Others are moved to invest in the college because it means so much to our area communities.

Whatever your reason for giving, we are here to make the process smooth and simple. We make it easy to give.

You can make a big difference in the life of a student through your donation for scholarships, programs or special projects.  We can’t wait to help you put your gift to work.

Our Presidential Partners program recognizes annual philanthropy of donors who believe so strongly in helping our students that they invest at least $1,000 each year in higher education. But no matter the size of the gift, every dollar counts!

In the links below, please explore the many ways you can donate – cash, securities, personal property or real estate. We can also arrange memorial gifts or honorariums, and process matching gifts. We are eager to help you find the perfect way to express your tax-deductible support for Northwest College, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization.

Ways to give

Cash

We welcome your cash gifts and will make it easy for you to donate in a one-time annual payment or in monthly installments. Gifts are tax deductible as provided by law, generally in the year in which you give. There are many ways for you to donate – online here; by mail to the NWC Foundation, 231 W. Sixth St., Powell, WY 82435; or in installment payments via electronic funds transfer (EFT) from your checking account. Please call us at 800-498-3914 to set up an EFT donation.

Securities

You can receive great tax deductions for gifts of securities. We’d be happy to arrange for your donation. The best stocks to donate are those that have increased greatly in value, particularly those producing a low yield. By donating appreciated securities, you avoid capital gains tax and receive a tax deduction for making a charitable gift. Gifts of stock are tax deductible at the fair market value. If you have stock losses, sell the stock yourself to realize the loss and take the deduction for tax purposes. Then generate a charitable contribution deduction by donating the cash proceeds of the sale to the foundation. Please call 800-498-3914 to set up a securities transfer.

Real Estate

You could receive substantial tax benefits for a donation of real estate. If you own property that is paid off and has appreciated in value, an outright gift may be your simplest option. You can deduct the fair market value of your gift, avoid all capital gains taxes and remove that asset from your taxable estate. Please contact us at 800-498-3914 to discuss a gift of real estate.

Personal Property

Would you like to donate assets such as books, works of art or scientific or historical collections? Donations that further the educational mission of the college can generate tax deductions equal to the fair market value of the gift. For more information, please call 800-498-3914.

Matching Gifts

Your employer may boost the size of your donation. Many companies match their employees’ charitable giving to institutions of higher education. Some also match charitable contributions made by retirees or directors. Matching gifts are directed to the same college, program, or scholarship fund as the employee’s original gift.  Please check to see if your company will match your gift.

Mail your forms to:

Memorials and Honorariums

A gift to education is a particularly meaningful way to pay tribute to someone special in your life or in the life of Northwest College. It even makes a distinctive anniversary or birthday gift for those who hold NWC dear. We are happy to notify honored designees or the family members of those remembered with your gifts, if you provide appropriate contact information when you make donations.
