NLC's Annual Fund
Annual Fund contributions are essential to ensuring that NLC continues to provide exceptional education and training opportunities, and to maintain our quality facilities. Annual fund gifts help support our highly regarded faculty; an innovative and evolving curriculum; campus technology and facility improvements. Like most colleges, NLC is reliant on generous gifts from many outside sources. We count among our benefactors our alumni, union partners, the AFL-CIO, many foundations, like-minded organizations, legal firms and many others who share our goals.
Your contribution, whether $50, $100, $500 or $50,000 or more, is both welcomed and valued and represents your demonstrated commitment to advance the lives and livelihood of workers throughout the United States. We encourage you to support the College as together we move forward to meet the complex challenges of the 21st Century.
Support NLC's Scholarship Fund
Your gift may be directed to helping students who cannot afford tuition and fees or to support existing scholarship opportunities.
In April of 2008, leaders of the AFL-CIO, International Unions and NLC officials, gathered on the front lawn of the Campus to dedicate the grounds where the new National Workers Memorial¯ would be built. The memorial honors the memories of union members and leaders who were killed or injured on the job, or in the cause of advancing the rights of working men and women.
The memorial is located in the center of the campus and will feature a plaza of bricks surrounded by granite benches and pavers. One may support the memorial in four ways: A union, or even loved-ones may sponsor an individual brick in the name of a fallen worker for $125. Slate pavers, which encircle the memorial may be sponsored for $2,000, to remember an important catastrophic event or notorious location where workers lost their lives or worked in peril. And whole categories of workers may be remembers through the sponsorship of a granite bench for $10,000. Finally, major supporting contributions of $50,000 or more toward construction will be remembered with a special marker.
