NECO's alumni and friends are essential to one of the core missions of the College: to educate the world leaders of tomorrow for careers in eye and vision care, research, and education. You can contribute in several ways.
Giving Societies honor individuals who have contributed greatly to NECO’s continued success through large gifts and estate planning.
Gifts to the Annual Fund help support items such as student financial aid, community outreach programs, curriculum innovations, and clinical facilities.
The Leadership Mentors and Scholars Program matches student leaders to mentors who provide a tuition stipend during their years at NECO.
Planned Giving Options
Planned giving is finding ways to make charitable gifts now or after your lifetime to make a lasting impact on the College, the community, and the future of optometric education.
Tribute gifts allow donors to honor a special person in their life – a friend, loved one, or mentor – or to commemorate a special occasion.
