Transforming Lives

Northeastern is ready.

Northeastern is worthy.

And the time is now.

Thank you for making a gift to the NEIU Foundation. Alumni, parents, and friends give to Northeastern Illinois University in a variety of ways.

Any gift, regardless of size, enhances our ability to fulfill our mission.

As we embark on this campaign to raise funds for this extraordinary university that strives to provide extraordinary scholarship support and exceptional learning environments, YOU are our most important partner in building the future of our University.

Thank you for your support!

 We are in Year Two of the Goodwin Gift Challenge!


Last year, Northeastern alumnus Daniel L. Goodwin issued a challenge to alumni and friends to raise $500,000 a year in 2016, 2017 and 2018, which he pledges to match. Guess what, Golden Eagles? You helped us reach Year One of the Goodwin Gift Challenge in 2016! That means Northeastern receives $500,000 from Mr. Goodwin. Thank you!

Year Two is officially underway with a new $500,000 goal. Participating in the Goodwin Gift Challenge is just one of many ways you can contribute toward Northeastern's first fundraising campaign. Can we Count You In?

When you "Count Me In!" your gift of any amount goes where you decide, AND, you double the impact by helping Northeastern in two places at once.

Just choose the amount you want to donate below, and then you can check the box to designate your gift to count toward the Goodwin Gift Challenge!
