The Northern State University Foundation is a key partner with the university in building and sustaining excellence among students and faculty, and fueling discovery in important areas on campus. The NSUF accomplishes this by raising and managing gifts from individuals and organizations. Through collaboration with university leaders and development officers, the NSUF staff ensures that fundraising activities are consistent with the university’s highest priorities and the donor’s philanthropic intentions.
Last year, the NSU Foundation contributed more than $20,362,456 to Northern State University, $17,534,265 of which was building commitments. More than $2.9 million was distributed directly to student scholarships. Through the gifts of generous supporters, the foundation and university awarded 2,133 scholarships, with an average scholarship award of $1,400 per student.
