Since his first gift to the Foundation in 2006, Dr. Tom Anderson, retired oncologist, has given in honor of cancer victims who were former patients, including Carrie Gasch, Dick Wilder, and, of course, Dolores Snyder, plus others. It’s only natural that Dr. Anderson’s tradition of giving developed as an extension of his professional practice. Though he is no longer practicing medicine, he continues to make a difference in his community.
With gifts received totaling more than $107,435, the fundraising initiative aimed to raise critical funding and ensure the sustainability of NWC. For every 50 donors, a $5,000 bonus was unlocked and added to the total Giving Day donations. Not only was the original goal of 250 donors nearly doubled, but all five $5,000 bonuses were unlocked early in the evening.

First NWC Giving Day a major success
More than 464 donors of the Trapper Family — ranging from alumni and current students to friends of Northwest — joined forces over the course of 24 hours March 25 to make Northwest College’s first Giving Day a great success.
“I know even my small gifts can make a difference when they are combined with the gifts of others, and I believe I need to do my part.
We all need to give back. It makes us better people.”
– Dr. Tom Anderson
Vibrancy: The Campaign for Northwest College celebrates our heritage and drives forward an imperative to transform our campus into an innovative, dynamic center for student learning and community vitality. We are moving forward to achieve a vibrancy in our buildings that matches the energy and drive of our students. We are putting their vision into practice. We are building a Student Center that enhances their out-of-classroom learning. This campaign intends to build a vibrant Student Center that will punctuate Northwest College’s sense of community and inclusion. The new Student Center will be a place of belonging – one that captures the Trapper spirit.
