Give to NOVA

NOVA Foundation

The NOVA Foundation is focused on supporting the students, faculty and programs of Northern Virginia Community College to continue to deliver academic innovation and excellence to our community. Even a small donation can have a big effect. Your generosity leads to real results for NOVA students, faculty, staff, and the Northern Virginia area as a whole.

Make a Gift

Originally from Yemen, I have been living in the U.S. since I was 14 to pursue an education. NOVA has supported me in my journey and positioned me to pursue my dream to become a human rights lawyer.

Making an Impact

The impact of gifts to NOVA is seen in more than dollars. It is found in lives. Gifts become text books for students, help fund the best faculty, pay for emergency transportation and create opportunities for students to participate in internships as a pathway to employment. Your gift to NOVA makes a difference.


Your donations for scholarships make it possible for bright students to earn their degrees, transfer to a four-year institution or enter the workforce.

Emergency Aid

Students will have access to the Student Success Fund to address unexpected emergency expenses that would otherwise force them to stop out or dropout from their educational journey.


Endowed faculty professorships are crucial for recruiting and retaining the highest-quality faculty. 


With more than 120 programs of study, NOVA transforms lives and strengthens the community by providing students with a brighter future.

Ways to Give

Your support for NOVA extends beyond our campuses. Your participation helps NOVA propel our community and state forward, creating a more highly educated workforce so Northern Virginia can remain economically competitive in an increasingly global marketplace. Your gift helps NOVA prepare students to meet our region’s most critical workforce needs, not just today but for the years ahead.

Leave a Legacy
