The Northern State Foundation is excited to host our third annual day of giving, GiveNDay, on April 5, 2023! This 24-hour challenge is designed to inspire all supporters of Northern to come together as we work to provide funding across the university.
Last year was a huge success as our community raised $330,000 from over 1,800 donors. Also known as #OneDayOnePack, this year’s goal is to receive support from 2,500 donors in 24 hours.
If you would like your campus-sponsored organization represented, please contact Aimee at the Foundation by Feb. 10, 2023. You can email Aimee at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We need your help! We are looking for students, faculty or alumni to represent their school, department, organization or team as Ambassadors. As Ambassadors, you have the opportunity to share your love of NSU with your family and friends via social media, and potentially earn rewards while doing it! Interested?
