Foundation Naming Opportunities

The CVCC Foundation currently has a number of naming opportunities.

What better way could there be to honor a person, company or organization than to attach the honoree’s name to some aspect of Catawba Valley Community College – a vibrant, growing institution.

Naming opportunities available in our $10 million endowment range as high as $1,000,000, which will name a major building. Other options will visibly display the honoree’s name to the community.

The Foundation welcomes your suggestions for naming opportunities. If you have an interest in naming an academic space, student activity or program, please contact the CVCC Foundation office.

For more information on naming opportunities, contact Teresa Biggs, CVCC Foundation executive director, at (828) 327-7000, ext. 4288, or

CVCC building and student

Catawba Valley Community College consistently rates as "Superior" under North Carolina General Assembly standards.

The CVCC Foundation seeks funds to create resources assuring CVCC students of access ad opportunity at the highest levels. To that end, the Foundation board has established five major student-centered priorities that will provide the basis and standard for grants from the endowments: unrestricted scholarships, student support, professional development, academic support, and enhanced college environment.

Many mechanisms exist for attaining an environment. Chief among them is a program that provides a wide range of naming opportunities.
