The NorthWest Arkansas Community College Foundation, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization which operates exclusively to encourage support and aid in the continual development of NorthWest Arkansas Community College (NWACC) and to solicit, accept, hold, invest, and administer any gifts, bequests or property of any sort for this educational purpose.

Incorporated in 1991, the NWACC Foundation is governed by a 30-person Board of Directors comprised of business and community leaders who believe strongly in the value of education and workforce development.  The Board is committed to helping the College become a high performing institution that consistently meets and exceeds the needs and expectations of the communities it serves.

In 2010, the NWACC Foundation celebrated the successful completion of its first-ever comprehensive capital campaign, resulting in $16 million to fund capital projects and a scholarship endowment.  The capital campaign has heightened the community’s awareness of the financial needs of the College which has broadened its donor base. The NWACC Foundation aspires to provide a major source of on-going financial support for the College through resources for academic programs, scholarships, capital endeavors, as well as build a significant endowment through philanthropic giving that will support and sustain the Foundation and the College for generations to come.
