Women for NNU

The Office of University Advancement at Northwest Nazarene University is pleased to announce a new women’s philanthropy initiative launched to address the power and potential of women’s patronage. Women for NNU is focused on inspiring, educating and encouraging the community. The group will be dedicated to giving women a greater voice and engaging women through a commitment to and relationship with NNU.

The launch of this initiative will support women who are first-generation college students and females as they consider higher education as an option for their future. In addition, they seek to support high-capacity females with an exceptional academic record within the community.

Women for NNU will have several levels of membership open to alumni, friends, students and employees of the university. The group hopes to support NNU and the surrounding community through general giving and scholarship, identifying and funding special academic and mission projects of female students, and creating opportunities for events to promote and inspire women.
