Join NOCE In the Global Generosity Movement, GivingTuesday!

NOCE students are in financial need now more than ever. On this GivingTuesday – November 30, 2021 – will you consider supporting our NOCE students? Each donation will go toward scholarships to help with books, software, and supplies required for spring classes.

The NOCCCD Foundation raised $550 during its first GivingTuesday campaign in December 2019 and over $3000 during its last GivingTuesday campaign in 2020 for NOCE scholarships and more. Will you help us this year to grow our NOCE student scholarship fund?

About GivingTuesday

GivingTuesday is a global generosity movement unleashing the power of people and organizations to transform their communities and the world. GivingTuesday was created in 2012 as a simple idea: a day that encourages people to do good. Over the past eight years, it has grown into a global movement that inspires hundreds of millions of people to give, collaborate, and celebrate generosity.

Whether it’s making someone smile, helping a neighbor or stranger out, showing up for an issue or people we care about, or giving some of what we have to those who need our help, every act of generosity counts, and everyone has something to give. GivingTuesday strives to build a world in which the catalytic power of generosity is at the heart of the society we build together, unlocking dignity, opportunity, and equity around the globe.

Established in 1987, the CCFONOC is a charitable, not-for-profit, tax-exempt organization under provisions of Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code, as well as a public charity, according to Section 509(a)(1) and 170(b)(1)(A)(vi) of the Internal Revenue Code. The foundation’s purpose is to assist in the achievement and maintenance of superior educational and community programs of the North Orange County Community College District. In 2008, the bylaws were expanded to include a standing committee to administer scholarship opportunities for North Orange Continuing Education students.
