Gifts to Create Endowed Funds

Endowments help to commend student achievement and promote academic excellence now and in the future. To create an endowed fund a gift of $5,000 or greater is required. Endowed funds are professionally invested and managed and the interest from them provides reliable, yearly funds for NCSD programs, services, and scholarships.
Tribute Gift
NCSD want to recognize the achievements of someone you love? We accept naming rights for individuals, families, and honors groups. This gift is in honor, memory, or support of someone and the mission of NCSD will help to honor and fulfill the passions and goal of servant-leadership in honor or memory of your love one.
