The New College Foundation is an independent, nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization that is governed by a volunteer board of directors.

The Foundation and its Board of Directors manages an endowment and a collection of funds that are invested for growth. Each year, endowment earnings are distributed, providing private support, as determined by donors, for students scholarships, academic programs, faculty research, and more.

Through prudent stewardship of donors’ gifts, the New College Foundation is able to ensure stability for programs and provide scholarships for students.
