GiveNDay is Coming! April 5-6, 2023

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
