15,000 Reasons Why We Need Your Support
If you're wondering why private support is important to Northern Kentucky University, I can give you more than 15,000 reasons.
Excellence at NKU is measured by the university's ability to transform lives through education. A college education not only gives students the knowledge and skills necessary to succeed, but also strengthens their ability to contribute constructively to society.
Your gifts to NKU, made through the Northern Kentucky University Foundation Inc., make a difference in the lives of our nearly 16,000 students. Whether you give unrestricted dollars or to designated areas, programs and projects of your choice, you are impacting a student's education. Your generosity also impacts NKU's ability to attract and retain talented students and faculty.
University Development comprises corporate and foundation relations, alumni and special giving, college-based fundraising, the Frank W. Steely Library, athletics and planned giving. It serves as the primary fundraising arm of the university and works with alumni, friends, foundations, corporations and organizations to secure private investment in support of the university's strategic goals and objectives. It also aims to build significant and lasting relationships among alumni, faculty and staff, foundations and corporations and friends of the university.
Your gift to NKU makes it possible to transform lives - here at the university and beyond. Scholarships and fellowships attract the best and brightest young minds, giving them the financial resources they need for success. Endowed chairs, professorships and lectureships help the university attract the most talented and prominent scholars. Innovative donor-supported outreach programs allow the impact of private support to ripple out into the surrounding community, state and region.
A dynamic campus atmosphere is also important to NKU. Private support is essential to create new facilities and maintain older ones. Your gifts enable us to provide an optimum learning environment for our students.
We encourage you to contact us and let our development team work with you to learn how you can make a difference in the life of a student. In order to support the fundraising priorities of our colleges, we have a major gift officer in each college - as well as a university-wide major gift officer. Contact them today and let them explain the many ways your support can have an impact. We believe it will make a difference in your life as well.
