There are many ways that you can contribute to the NOW organization. No matter the size the gift you are able to contribute, NOW appreciates and welcomes your kindness.


Adopt-a-Student Program

Through NOW’s Adopt-A-Student Program, individuals, churches, corporations, foundations, civic groups and social groups all have the opportunity to support a NOW scholar in their journey to higher education. A sponsorship can go beyond just a financial contribution, as the sponsor will have the option to become a mentor and counselor to their student. Either way, every sponsor can be assured that they will have a profound and personal impact on someone’s life.

To be a sponsor, you or your organization must make a $1,500 commitment per year for each year the student enrolls in NOW, not to exceed five years. While you have the option to remain anonymous, a relationship in which you can mentor and counsel your aspiring student is mutually beneficial for you both. You will also receive a yearly student progress report so you can share in the development and impact that your student will make. NOW will select the student and subsequently submit his/her name to a sponsor.

Each student will submit a NOW application form, an income form, a release form, and his/her most recent official school transcript. He/she must attend a NOW program and will be expected to remain in good academic standing. If for some reason the student becomes ineligible, a replacement will be made by NOW with the approval of the sponsor.



NOW accepts special scholarships for outside organizations including corporations, colleges and universities, civic and social groups and individuals. If you are interested in establishing a Scholarship, please call us at 775.525.1835
