Gifts or pledges toward our capital improvement projects are recognized, in part, through naming opportunities. It is our pleasure to recognize those who financially support these projects in a public way.

We are continuously making changes and improvements to our existing facilities to accommodate new, in-demand programs or equipment. Capital and program gifts, such as lab build-outs and renovations, directly impact our academic programs. With generous private funding for these current projects, New River CTC students will be able to learn on leading-edge equipment that meets industry standards, use technology that will make them high-demand workers and provide opportunities for continued growth.
