More About the Chuck Kane Scholarship Golf Event
Chuck Kane, former NEIU athletic director, was a dedicated teacher and a beloved golf coach. The NEIU community honors his memory with the annual Chuck Kane Scholarship Golf Event, the University's longest running philanthropic event. The Kane family continues to support the event as golfers and sponsors.
“The mission of this event is to support our students with scholarships and to honor the memory of a consummate professor,” said Liesl Downey, executive director of the NEIU Foundation and Northeastern’s vice president for Institutional Advancement. “It is one of the most symbolic efforts of the Foundation, and we are grateful to everyone who joins us in our efforts.”
In total, seven scholarships are funded by the Chuck Kane Scholarship Golf Event, which has raised $403,606 since 1991. With an endowment of $463,457, the scholarship has provided support for nearly 200 students.
When you support the Chuck Kane Scholarship Golf Event, you are directly benefiting students at what is considered the most diverse college or university in the Midwest, according to The Wall Street Journal/Times Higher Education and U.S. News & World Report. With over 100 countries of citizenship represented by our student body for Fall 2017, Diverse: Issues in Higher Education recognized NEIU as a top-100 university for ethnically diverse graduates. Also, according to U.S. News & World Report and LendEDU, Northeastern is the best in the state and among the nation's leaders at graduating students with the least debt.
