Thank You NOVA Community!

NOVA Giving Day has been an amazing success!

With your help we were able to raise over $75,000 in support of our NOVA Nighthawks!

THANK YOU to everyone who has given so far. We will keep the campaign open throughout the weekend and encourage our entire community to continue to invest and share. NOVA students work hard to achieve their educational and career goals and your investment helps them reach the graduation finish line.

Thank You to our NOVA Nighthawks who came to celebrate with us!

Thank You to our business partners that came out to meet our students!

Thank You to the NOVA alumni who came back to campus!

Be generous. Be bold. Boldly NOVA.


Let NOVA Giving Day 2024 Begin!

NOVA Giving Day is here! Thank you to all the NOVA alumni, faculty, staff, and supporters who have already donated leading up to today.

We are excited to announce that an anonymous donor has generously committed to match our first $25,000 raised! Last year, this same donor made a surprise gift to kick off our day of giving and was so inspired by the impact of the NOVA Foundation that this year they wanted to do even more — and we are grateful for this incredible investment in our students!

Can we count on your help to reach this milestone in today's effort to support NOVA students?

Help us reach our goal! Donate today and be part of Giving Day!


Meet Gomolemo Mohapi

From coding enthusiast to Microsoft employee, Community College Initiative (CCI) student Gomolemo Mohapi's journey is inspirational!

Growing up in Durban, South Africa, Gomolemo discovered his love for coding in high school. He began sharing his knowledge through tutorials and workshops at his university. Now, he's a cloud advocate at Microsoft, blending coding skills with community support.

"It's surreal. After returning home from NOVA, I went back to university and continued with what I had been doing before, creating programming guides and workshops for my peers. Soon after, though, I started traveling around my province because other colleges wanted me to put on workshops for their students, too! Eventually, I was doing workshops across South Africa. Being at NOVA is such a privilege. You will be served by amazing people who genuinely care about your future and well-being.""
