Principal’s Project – Transforming our Technology
Over the years the theme of our fundraising has been about making NTC fully accessible: a place where people can come, learn, grow, engage, connect and find themselves stretched into learning. The more we’ve created ways of people being able to get into places, and be fully dignified and able to participate, the more we’ve had students from a variety of circumstances discover that we are a college that is for them.
This year our Project extends our accessibility by investing in a wide range of technology to support our learning environment. From new energy efficient boilers, to cameras for our online classes, to boosting our WiFi to enable smooth fire systems in our buildings (for a mind boggling £30,000) – tech is shaping us heavily and helps us keep our doors open. Our mission of serving, equipping and connecting people continues and we’re doing everything we can to extend our provision and reach around the world in new ways – including online delivery. Our hope is to revamp our tech world – essentially, taking our campus and ramping it up in all kinds of ways to help us serve the student body both here and around the world as we shift towards online. It may be this doesn’t sound as exotic as some of our projects, since it’s more of less invisible to the naked eye, but investment in our present technology and infrastructure will enable us to reach new audiences in new ways from a sound campus.
- Sponsor IT Infrastructure Development: £5 – £25
- Sponsor a Computer Upgrade: £25 – £100
- Sponsor a Classroom Upgrade: £25 – £500
- Sponsor our Boiler Replacement: £500 – £1,000

Friends of NTC
Friends of NTC is an initiative dedicated to ensuring NTC is around and thriving for many decades to come. Friends of NTC follows a tradition established in the 1970s by Dr Hugh Rae, Principal of the College. “The Doc” sought out those who cared deeply about NTC: lay leaders, NTC alumni, faculty, governors, ministers, business leaders, all with an affection for and connection with NTC, to invite them to invest in the life of NTC. Being a Friend of NTC means committing to give regularly to the College.
In return for your regular gifts to NTC, you will receive the following benefits.
- Membership in a select group of supporters
- Invitation to annual gatherings limited to Friends of NTC members
- One free class (online or in-person) annually
- Regular communication from the College and the Principal

Student Hardship Fund
We particularly want to increase the funding for this area, which provides help to students who are experiencing genuine and unavoidable financial difficulties and are struggling with their living costs. The fund is intended to assist with general living and course-related costs, not tuition fees or lifestyle choices. All applications will be means-tested.
- Some of our students face incredible challenges in their time with us but are faithful to their call. Every now and then a catastrophe happens and a student faces a genuine or unavoidable financial challenge. Over the years we’ve developed a hardship fund for those students who struggle with living costs. Sometimes it comes about because of a family emergency (the wife of one student shattered her leg, couldn’t work, lost her job and her husband, a student, continued his own work as well as study – they needed this support! Another student had a family bereavement and used his money to cover the cost of the funeral which left him short) sometimes it’s because of a delay in financial support. We do our very best to ensure that no one goes short.
Sponsor a Student Fund
Students at NTC are the ‘everyday’ life of the college – learning in classes, shaped by what they read, and having access to good resources across the campus and for those off-site, through video-conferencing and local on-site libraries. The investment in students at this level is long term and the ripples spread to the many people they serve around the world. If you would like to invest in the life of a student you may wish to consider donating to one of the following by using the donation form below:
- Sponsor a book (average £18 per book)
- Sponsor a Student (Cost per week – £200 in fees)
- Sponsor a Lecturer / Class (average cost £500)
- Sponsor a Conference (average cost of hosting £1,000)
- One of the college’s values is to enhance excellence in every way possible! We’ve undertaken a lot of improvements in the grounds, the car parks, the signs, the lighting … and have a lot of dreams of other ways we can make our college properties beautiful, environmentally friendly, and a mirror of God’s love for creation.
- If you would like to help us keep the NTC campus beautiful and support its development then you can choose to donate to the campus development fund.
