Giving Opportunities

The Northern Fund

Nowhere is the tradition of giving more vital than in scholarships, with one generation assisting the next.

The Heritage Society

The Heritage Society honors those individuals who have named Northern State University Foundation as beneficiary through planned gifts such as trusts, insurance and bequests. Many gift options enable donors to contribute for the future benefit of Northern State University while taking advantage of the income and tax advantages these gifts provide.

Annual Scholarship

An annual scholarship provides a yearly award to students who meet the criteria established by you and the university. The scholarship may be established with a one-time gift with the awards being made until the funds are diminished or the donor may contribute the amount of the award every year.

The Wolves Club

The NSU Wolves Club is the largest annual fund-raising program for men's & women's intercollegiate athletics.

Founded in 1978, the Wolves Club is a dedicated group of athletic fans who volunteer their time and talent to promote Northern Athletics. These boosters raise annual revenue for the athletic program through concession sales, special events, sponsorships and the annual membership drive.

Legacy of Leadership

Recognition through naming opportunities for programs, buildings, or endowments can memorialize a loved one, salute a mentor or honor one's family. The staff of the NSU Foundation can help you develop the naming opportunity to meet your philanthropic wishes.
