History of Giving

A Strong History of Supporting Students

Chartered by the State of Wisconsin on April 7, 1970, the Nicolet College Foundation is a non-profit 501(c) (3) organization created to support the objectives of Nicolet College and its mission to deliver "superior community college education that transforms lives and enriches communities."

The Foundation has a strong history of supporting Nicolet students and district communities through the generous gifts of individuals, organizations, businesses, staff and alumni. Since 2001, the Nicolet College Foundation has awarded more than 1,400 scholarships to help students complete their degrees and certificate programs. Community-based scholarship fundraiser events provide direct financial support for students. The Foundation also generates funding for special projects, like the Burn Building facility for local firefighters, an addition to the former campus daycare center, and the recent development of a sound-proof, acoustically-designed music lab, complete with keyboard desks, a sound system and projection screen, and a corresponding library listening area.
