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 over $49.3 million to Northern State University, with $2.75 million going directly to student scholarships. Through the gifts of generous supporters, the foundation and university awarded 2,000 scholarships, with an average scholarship award of $1,382 per student.
