Kane golf outing at NEIU

Tuesday, July 14, 2015

As Northeastern Illinois University prepares to tee off the 43rd annual Chuck Kane Scholarship Golf Event on Aug. 17, we take a look back at the impressive numbers the NEIU Foundation’s top fundraiser has accumulated over the years.


That is the value of the Kane Scholarship endowment, and it’s growing every year!


That’s how much the NEIU Foundation has raised for the Kane Scholarship since taking over the event in its 34th year.


That’s how much an autographed Michael Jordan jersey sold for during the silent auction in 2013.


That’s how many golfers have participated in the event since the NEIU Foundation took over.


Kane Scholarship Recipients to date. In 2014, the NEIU Foundation awarded Kane Scholarships to 13 students totaling $7,200.


The Kane Scholarship Fund provides scholarships to all of Northeastern’s colleges (Arts and Sciences, Education, Business and Management, and Graduate Studies and Research).


Holes-in-one recorded, and by none other than Chuck Kane’s daughter Liz Kane in 1995.
