Northeast Iowa Community College Foundation

The Northeast Iowa Community College Foundation was established in 1981 as an external 501(c)(3) organization and has matched its donors' passion and investment with NICC student's needs through scholarships, services and enhanced programming ever since.

The Foundation provides resources to assist NICC students with the education and training they need to create a better life for themselves and their families in addition to providing a skilled workforce for our local communities.
