Projects & Programs
As a donor, you become part of the legacy of giving that has made Northwest College a special place. Gifts and grants have funded an astounding number of projects and programs that have forever changed us. In 1946, we opened as a 100-student school with three instructors who met in borrowed classrooms. Today, more than 1,500 students earn credits on a 132-acre campus featuring 62 buildings. We couldn’t have done it without donors’ support.
The foundation now owns 50 acres of land adjacent to campus for expansion and manages assets valued at $38.2 million. We’ve had a hand in raising funds for many facility upgrades and new construction, such as the Willard Moyer Computer Center and the Paul Stock Agriculture Pavilion.
Grants have provided funds for biology lab microscopes, nursing lab laptops, instruments for the music program, nursing skill mannequins, welding equipment, Yellowstone Jazz Camp, physics lab equipment, microfilm readers for the library, and… well, you get the idea. The list is long and impressive, touching every corner of the campus.
Below are some examples of recent major projects that would not have been possible without our donors’ generous gifts.
