Annual Fund for Excellence


Something special is happening at NKU. NKU is connecting students to their dreams.

Throughout campus, students are pushing boundaries with their innovations and building impressive resumes in the process. They are learning how they can positively impact their communities through their professional and civic contributions. And in the process, they are establishing NKU as a leader in the region.

But we couldn't do it without your support.

By investing in the Annual Fund, you enable NKU to strengthen its programs, upgrade its technology, offer more scholarships and enhance the overall NKU educational experience.
