The North Georgia Technical College Foundation, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, was created in 2000 to enhance educational opportunities at North Georgia Technical College. The Foundation is governed by a volunteer board of trustees made up of representatives from NGTC’s eight-county service area. Membership includes college alumni as well as local business and community leaders.
The mission of the Foundation is to create awareness of the financial needs of the college and encourage donations of resources which are managed wisely to assure quality education for its students. One way the Foundation Board of Trustees supports this mission is through the awarding of scholarships to deserving students with a demonstrated financial need.

The NGTC Foundation is guided by business and community volunteer leaders who represent the eight counties in our service area: Fannin, Franklin, Habersham, Rabun Stephens, Towns, Union and White Counties. The Board of Trustees is focused on obtaining the resources necessary to constantly improve the educational experience of our students.
North Georgia Technical College received $5.6 million from the Georgia State Legislature to renovate the gymnasium on the Clarkesville Campus. The building will become the Dr. Mark A. Ivester Center for Living and Learning (“The Mark”) in memory of our former college president. As was his vision, this facility will once again become the focal point for student activities and community events for generations to come.
The North Georgia Technical College Foundation Board of Trustees is proud to have raised $250,000 for equipment, materials, and supplies not included in the renovation funds. We hope you will take a moment and watch the video to learn more about this exciting project.

The North Georgia Technical College Foundation gratefully accepts gifts of support from alumni, businesses and friends of the college. Each gift does its part to make a significant impact in the lives of our students and enhances the overall well-being of the college. As a 501(c)(3) entity, gifts to the North Georgia Technical College Foundation are tax-deductible and are classified into two broad categories: Present Giving and Planned Giving. For a present gift, the donor makes an outright gift with an immediate transfer of assets to the college. For a planned gift, the donor gives a future interest in the property, with actual transfer of the property deferred to some future time.
A gift of cash, personal check, or credit card is by far the most popular way to give. You should receive a full tax benefit if you itemize deductions. Checks should be made payable to NGTC Foundation and sent to P.O. Box 65, Clarkesville, GA 30523. Be sure to indicate how you wish your gift to be used.
Online donations are a safe and secure way to easily make your contribution. Click the “Donate” button above to give to the Foundation.
A pledge may be made for the Scholarship Fund or for any special projects. Most pledges are paid over a three-year period. Pledge reminders are generally sent at the end of each calendar year or upon request.
Many employers agree to match or multiply donations made by active or retired employees and, in some cases, employees’ spouses. Specific information about matching-gift programs can be obtained by contacting your organization’s personnel or human resources office.
