I want to make NCTC a beneficiary of my estate. 


Making a bequest is the most common way to provide for an estate gift to NCTC. A bequest to NCTC can be made for a specific amount, for a percentage of your estate, or even for a portion of what remains of your estate once your bequests to family and friends have been fulfilled.

Where will my money go and what will it support?


Your gift will be directed to our General Fund, where it will support NCTC’s most important needs such as artist & teacher salaries, student financial aid, and program advancement. Alternatively, you can restrict your gift to support a specific purpose or program.
