Get Ready, Golden Eagles!
This year's #GivingTuesday is November 27! We're looking for all Golden Eagles to participate in this International Day of Giving, to show your pride and commitment to Northeastern's goals in providing students access to education and opportunity for success. You and your fellow Golden Eagles can give to your favorite college, your favorite department, your favorite program or your favorite scholarship! Look for more information soon!
#GivingTuesday 2017 was a Great Success!
Because of you, your shares on Facebook, your Tweets and your Instagrams, Northeastern Illinois University has seen yet another record-setting Giving Tuesday - a colossal $44,000 from 100 donors! That is double the amount raised in 2016 on Giving Tuesday!
Golden Eagles everywhere showed their commitment to students, to programs, to scholarships ... to Northeastern. For that, we say thank you!
What is Giving Tuesday?
We have a day to give thanks, and we have two days to get deals. Now we have a day dedicated to giving back.
For many years, we as a society only thought of Black Friday or Cyber Monday after Thanksgiving, but now we can kick off the holiday season of giving back right away. That's the purpose of Giving Tuesday — the Tuesday after Thanksgiving.
Over the past four years, #GivingTuesday has become a touchstone of Northeastern Illinois University's fundraising efforts, and the impact of this one-day of giving is felt year-round. Your gifts sustain scholarships and opportunities that cultivate the minds and hearts of our students.
How to Support Northeastern on Giving Tuesday:
MAKE A GIFT
Show your NEIU pride and excitement by making a gift to Northeastern. Support from our alumni and friends makes a huge difference in the lives of our students and the community. Northeastern is a place of choice for its affordability, great programs, and a diverse environment. Every gift of every size counts toward the betterment of Northeastern's mission and vision.
SPREAD THE WORD
Here's your chance to spread the word about why you give to NEIU.
Wear blue and gold and proudly display your Northeastern spirit. Join classmates, colleagues, and alumni on campus and around the world by sharing your memories, stories and photos on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. Use the hashtag and let everyone know on Nov. 27 what you love most about Northeastern.

Double the impact of your gift! Do you or your partner/spouse work for a company with a matching gift program? Check with your company to see if they participate in a matching gift program - your gift can be doubled, or even tripled if your employer matches contributions made by their employees.
