Campaign gift pledges are payable for a five-year period. Many special opportunities are available.
An unrestricted donation allows the school to apply your gift to areas of greatest need to support our many programs, enhance the experience of students both on campus and across the state, and help us expand our offerings so that we continue to provide once-in-a-lifetime opportunities to our students.
Endowment gifts are invested to generate a permanent, recurring source of funding. Contribute to an existing endowment fund, or with a minimum gift of $25,000, establish a new endowment for a specific purpose.
Naming opportunities recognize extraordinary generosity to the Ignite + Transform Campaign. Priority for reserving naming opportunities will be based first on a donor’s campaign gift or pledge level and second on the earliest date of campaign commitment. Naming opportunities are available starting at $25,000. They can apply to locations and funds (endowments and expendable funds).
Designated or restricted funds refer to a gift that can only be used for specific projects or purposes, giving donors assurance that their gifts are being used in a manner they desire. Having listened to the suggestions of alumni, parents, faculty and students, the Ignite+Transform campaign has identified a list of opportunities that have been identified to support our multidisciplinary learning environment to help our students succeed-not just at NCSSM but over the long term.
We accept one-time or multi-year gifts of cash, stocks, or property.

Donor-advised funds (DAFs) are philanthropic vehicles established at public charities that allow donors to make charitable contributions, receive immediate tax benefits, and then recommend grants from the funds over time. If you have already established a Donor Advised Fund elsewhere, consider recommending grants from your fund to the NCSSM Foundation.

“This school fundamentally changed the trajectory of my life. It’s not a debt I can ever repay. NCSSM was an equity investor in my future, and whenever I have a chance to give back and pay it forward, I will take every opportunity to do so.”
