Education Fund

Incorporated in 2005 as a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization, the NSC Education Fund was purposed to enrich lives by supporting North’s students, faculty, staff and programs. The Education Fund played an essential role in the growth of the college through 2018 and provided hundreds of thousands of dollars in scholarships, mini grants, special awards and other targeted initiatives. In December of 2018, the NSC Education Fund merged with the Seattle Colleges Foundation.

Seattle Colleges Foundation

In 2018, the Office of Advancement launched the Seattle Colleges Foundation, a new institutionally-related nonprofit that emerged from a process of consultation and collaboration among the campuses comprising Seattle Colleges, each of which previously supported a separate foundation. The Seattle Colleges Foundation is the official fundraising arm of Seattle Colleges, including North Seattle College.

The move to a single, unified foundation follows a prevailing national model for multiple-college districts adopting an integrated approach. It serves the philanthropic needs for each college as well as the Seattle Colleges District as a whole. With implemented structural changes, consolidated resources, improved coordination, and renewed strategy and alignment, we increase our overall fundraising capacity and efficiency.
