About the Foundation

The New River Community and Technical College (CTC) Foundation was established in 2007 as a 501(c)3 nonprofit corporation to support the College’s mission to provide accessible, affordable, quality education and workforce programs to meet the needs of the region we serve. Our role is to make education accessible and affordable for our students by providing scholarships, building and technology improvements, and equipment that facilitates hands-on learning.

The New River CTC Foundation’s Board of Directors provides oversight of community relations, fundraising, and awards disbursement. They work in conjunction with the President of the College, Dr. L. Marshall Washington, and the Vice President for Institutional Advancement and Executive Director of the Foundation, Karen Harvey, CFRE, who serve as ex-officio members of the Board.
