What we do and how we do it

NAIT gifts and donations help students and their communities overcome barriers to academic and personal success by providing supporting funds and access to leading-edge research, resources and equipment.

We work with our incredible network of donors, sponsors and community members both locally and abroad to help us through funding, equipment and technology and their time and expertise.



Students always come first

Equal access to polytechnic education is our highest priority. Funds from donations directly support student success through scholarships, bursaries and state-of-the-art learning technology.
