The CCSNH Promise Program: Closing the Tuition Gap for Eligible New Hampshire Community College Students!

Ways to Give: More Ways to Give

CCSNH Employee Giving

It has long been a request of faculty & staff to provide an opportunity to support our students directly.   In partnership with our colleges, The Foundation for NH Community Colleges launched the first Employee Giving Program (EGP) at CCSNH in 2021.  In addition to giving by check or credit card, the EGP provides the option to support students through payroll deduction.

Our collective efforts can be life-changing for students of all ages and aspirations. A gift of any size will help students like Cailin fulfill their dreams.

“Thank you very much for this opportunity to further my education… I am very grateful and honored and plan to use these resources to further my life skills and future career. As someone who does not have many resources, you are helping me build my life and future into something I can be proud of and extremely enthusiastic about.”

The Employee Giving Program was established at the request of faculty and staff to provide employees an option to support students at their college. Making a charitable contribution is a personal decision, and participation is entirely optional.   


If you support local organizations through the United Way, please continue to direct your generous contributions in this manner. If, however, you wish to support our community college students directly, the EGP allows you to contribute via payroll deduction and 100% of your donation will support your charitable intentions.

You can contribute to The Foundation via check, credit card or payroll deduction.

You may designate your gift to any fund held by The Foundation.  The most common selection is your college’s unrestricted scholarship fund.

Payroll deduction allows you to spread your gift out over a specified period, so your giving is automatic and easier on cash flow.  Contributions are taken from your after-tax earnings.

For those who sign up for payroll deduction, the first deduction will be on January 13, 2023.

There are no fees if you contribute by check or payroll deduction.  A 3% processing fee is charged on credit card contributions.

Yes. The Foundation will provide you with a tax receipt in January 2024 for your 2023 contributions.

The Foundation may include your name among a list of donors in its annual report unless you designate on your contribution form that you wish to remain anonymous.

Employees are not required to participate in the Employee Giving Program.  Our primary goal is to be responsive and provide a benefit for all CCSNH employees. Participating is optional and offers the opportunity to help students achieve their educational aspirations.
