The Northeastern Illinois University Foundation recognizes that the future is filled with many unknowns. One of the ways to ensure the mission of the University and to support future students is through a well-funded endowment. You can support this important initiative by establishing a named scholarship, making a donation to the endowment, or directing proceeds from your estate to the Foundation.

An endowment fund offers permanent financial support because of the income generated through careful investment management.

There are many ways for you to make a gift to the endowment fund, for example:

  • A cash, check or credit card donation
  • The transfer of assets like stocks
  • The inclusion of the Northeastern Illinois University Foundation in your will

If you are interested in supporting our endowment fund, please call the Vice President for Institutional Advancement at (773) 442-4202 or at
