The Foundation replaced my textbooks that were lost in a fire at my apartment. Without the Nashville State Foundation’s help, I wouldn't have the necessary materials to learn efficiently in my classes. Thank you for all that you do.”

Four Reasons to Donate

  1. You invest in our local economy. Nashville State grads enter Middle Tennessee's workforce with the specific skills and training to help businesses grow, as well as attract new ones to the area.
  2. You level the playing field. When you help meet the unique and immediate needs of non-traditional students, you help put college graduation within reach for anyone with a desire to succeed – regardless of their economic status.
  3. You impact quality of life in our community. A degree or technical certificate creates a ripple effect of increased earning potential, economic contribution, community involvement, and new opportunities for generations to come.
  4. You make an immediate difference. Because NSCCF's critical needs differ in scope from those of traditional higher ed institutions, every dollar of support for our programs and students goes further, faster.
