You may be surprised to learn that our endowment is just over $500,000. In the past, NJC has focused on meeting immediate financial needs. Today, we are working to build the endowment fund to secure the financial future of the College. If you would like to learn more about our plans for the Endowment Fund, please contact the Advancement Department.
The major benefactor or group of contributors decide on the name of their Fund. You may establish a fund in your own name or you might name it in honour of a friend, family member, classmate or a favourite teacher.
Some donors choose to designate a particular interest in the criteria such as recruitment of candidates who have a specific academic interest or hail from the same city or town as the donor. We invite all donors to participate in establishing the scholarship criteria by expressing their intentions for the award. After a discussion, the Director of Advancement will draft a term sheet according to your specifications and present it for collaboration and approval.
The major contributor to each fund is notified annually, in the late winter or early spring, once the candidate has signed their award or bursary agreement. You will be informed of the name and hometown of the recipient, as well as the amount of the award or bursary and status of the fund. Your scholarship will also be recognized in our donor listings, unless you wish to remain anonymous.
A named fund may be established with a minimum contribution of $50,000 to The Neuchâtel Junior College Fund. This may be offered as a lump sum or you may establish your fund with an initial installment of $10,000 followed by 4 yearly installments of the same amount.
