Thank you for your gift to the Northeastern Illinois University Foundation! In an effort to streamline our processes, minimize our paper use, and with staff continuing to work remotely, your online donation will receive an email confirmation as receipt of your generous gift. We encourage our donors to make gifts online when possible rather than through the mail, allowing our staff to process your gift more quickly. All mailed donations will receive a paper acknowledgement unless a donor advises us otherwise.

Donors with $500 or more in cumulative contributions will receive an end-of-calendar-year statement of their giving.

If you have questions or need assistance, please contact us at neiufoundation@neiu.edu or (773) 442-4200. Thank you for your patience and support.


The coronavirus pandemic has caused major disruptions in the lives of our students. The University is deploying the Student Emergency Fund to support unexpected challenges due to wage or job losses, access to online learning, and many other needs. We encourage you to consider a gift to this fund. You can donate using this form or learn more about the fund.
