Empower Bright Futures
2020, Northern Virginia Community College
The Northern Virginia Community College Educational Foundation (NOVA Foundation) hosted its 24th annual fundraising event on Nov. 12. The event was held virtually this year and is an important vehicle to build awareness of the work of the Foundation. Contributions made through the event support programs and services for NOVA students. It highlighted the tremendous impact of NOVA on the lives of its students, faculty and the broader community. This year’s theme, “Empower Bright Futures,” called on attendees to contribute their “time, talent and treasure” to enable NOVA’s students to achieve their dream of higher education. In addition to raising $155,000 that night for ‘Empowering Bright Futures’ in support of NOVA’s Nighthawks, the Foundation’s event raised a call to action: let’s do more to identify our outstanding alumni so that their stories can inspire our students.
