NOCE’s Giving Tuesday launches Tuesday, December 1, 2020

Now, more than ever, our students are in financial need. Scholarships go toward helping students with books, software, licensing fees, supplies, and to transition to a credit institution such as Fullerton College or Cypress College.

To contribute to our GivingTuesday campaign,

The NOCCCD Foundation raised $550 during its first GivingTuesday campaign in December 2019 and over $3,000 during its last GivingTuesday campaign in May 2020.

We hope to continue to grow this fundraising effort. For more information on GivingTuesday,

North Orange Continuing Education offers a variety of scholarships to students on an annual basis. The NOCE Scholarship Program is part of the Community College Foundation of North Orange County (CCFONOC), informally known as the NOCCCD Foundation.

Established in 1987, the CCFONOC is a charitable, not-for-profit, tax-exempt organization under provisions of Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code, as well as a public charity, according to Section 509(a)(1) and 170(b)(1)(A)(vi) of the Internal Revenue Code. The foundation’s purpose is to assist in the achievement and maintenance of superior educational and community programs of the North Orange County Community College District. In 2008, the bylaws were expanded to include a standing committee to administer scholarship opportunities for North Orange Continuing Education students.
