Northshore College Enhancement Foundation

Our Mission

The Northshore College Enhancement Foundation provides progressive support for the work of Northshore Technical Community College, increasing transformational opportunities for our institution, our community and our people.

Why is giving to NCEF so important?

Private support is essential to Northshore Technical Community College.  With only 40% of the College's operating budget coming from the state and local governments, we count on our community to help make exceptional educational opportunities available for all.  A donation to the Northshore College Enhancement  Foundation is an investment in the Northshore Region and Louisiana as well as those seeking a better future through education.  With your help, NTCC will continue to provide excellence in education for years to come.
