ABERDEEN, S.D. – Northern State University and the NSU Foundation will host the third annual day of giving, GiveNDay, on Wednesday, April 5.
Also known as #OneDayOnePack, this 24-hour challenge is designed to inspire all supporters of Northern to come together to provide essential funding across the university.
Last year’s event was a huge success, with the community raising $330,000 from over 1,800 donors. This year’s goal is to receive support from 2,500 donors in 24 hours.
“There is a lot of pride and enthusiasm year-round in the Northern State community,” Zach Flakus, NSU Foundation president and CEO said. “We’re excited to bring our alumni and friends together to support our students, faculty and staff over this 24-hour period.”
To achieve this goal, Northern students, staff, faculty, alumni, friends and community members are encouraged to donate through the GiveNDay webpage, givingday.northern.edu. Supporters may designate their gifts to a specific area of campus or to the University’s Area of Greatest Need, which provides student scholarships and discretionary funds for unexpected needs or sudden exciting opportunities for students, staff or faculty.
