Across campus and around the globe, Huskies are changing the world through their energy, hard work, and gifts to others. 

Making a gift in your long-term plans to the Northern Illinois University Foundation is a perfect way for anyone who loves NIU—alumni, parents, grandparents, faculty and friends—to create a lasting legacy and further the University’s positive impact on students, our communities, and the world we share.

These gifts come in many forms, such as a gift in your will or retirement plan, many of which won’t affect your current financial resources but will have a significant impact at NIU. 

Whether you would like to put your donation to work today or benefit us after your lifetime, you can find a giving plan that lets you provide for your family and support NIU. We can help you explore options.

When you reach out to the NIU Foundation Planned Giving Office, you will find that we are creative, knowledgeable problem solvers who are happy to be a resource for the Huskie family.
