Organized in 1968 and IRS approved in 1969 as a nonprofit, tax exempt 501 (c) (3) corporation, the NIACC Foundation is structurally separate from North Iowa Area Community College and is governed by an appointed Board of Directors. The Foundation was formed because private gifts help make a college exceptional, while traditional resources (state assistance and tuition/fees) typically support the basics. The NIACC Foundation is the preferred channel for private gifts to the College, through annual giving programs, planned gifts, and major or special gift campaigns.
The overall mission of the NIACC Foundation is to maximize private gift support and provide stewardship to multiply funds already raised. The Foundation aligns itself with the College’s major priorities in order to aid NIACC in fulfilling its own mission of excellence in education and service to the North Iowa region.
