Ways to Give

Listed below are the various ways you can give to NNU. You can participate in a large project, like the new Student Commons, or donate to an endowed fund or scholarship.



Student Commons

We're happy to announce that all gifts toward the Student Commons will be matched for the next 60 days as we work to raise the last $500,000. Help us finish the new student commons!

Endowments & Scholarships

Endowment funds, including endowed scholarships, exist in perpetuity and provide the resources each year that are necessary for countless students to experience NNU.

University Fund

A lifeline of the operating budget, the University Fund bridges some of the gap between the full cost of education at NNU and the amount actually paid by students.

Matching Gifts

Many employers sponsor matching gift programs and will match charitable contributions made by employees, retirees, and spouses of employees. By taking advantage of a company'€™s matching gift benefit, you may be able to double, or even triple the amount of your contribution.
