About the NOVA Foundation

The NOVA Foundation is the only non-profit organization dedicated to securing private resources to support the Northern Virginia Community College (NOVA).   Funds raised by the Foundation support scholarships and emergency grants for NOVA students as well as programs for faculty and staff through means that are simply not possible with state funds alone. Today’s economic realities make the Foundation’s work securing private donations more important than ever.
