About the NOVA Foundation

Founded in 1979, the NOVA Foundation is dedicated to supporting Northern Virginia Community College’s goal of providing all students with a high-quality, life-changing education.  To create opportunity for all students, the Foundation – a 501(c) 3 organization – secures funding, increases visibility and strengthens partnerships among the College, individual donors, businesses and state and local communities. Today’s economic realities make the Foundation’s work in securing private donations more important than ever.  At NOVA, every student succeeds, every program achieves, and every community prospers. Make a gift. Make a difference.

The NOVA Educational Foundation provides resources so that a quality education and skills training will be available to all, transforming the lives of our students, their families and our community.

The NOVA Educational Foundation supports the strategic priorities of the College by securing private funding through engaging individuals, foundations, corporations, businesses and organizations.

  • EQUITY – We promote diversity across all dimensions and marshal our resources so all our actions are fair and impartial.
  • EXCELLENCE – We are committed to being innovative, entrepreneurial, ethical, effective and efficient, and continually improve in all we do.
  • EMPATHY – We strive to know and understand the feelings and diverse perspectives of all our stakeholders.
  • EVIDENCE – We view data as a strategic asset and are committed to making data- informed decisions.
  • ECONOMIC & SOCIAL MOBILITY – We believe access to quality education is the primary driver of a better quality of life for current and future generations.

Our board is composed of dedicated individuals from the NOVA region who believe and are willing advocates for the College and its students. Responsibilities of the Board include strategic planning, advocacy and fundraising. Funds raised by the Foundation provide much-needed support for scholarships, faculty development and academic program resources.
