Huskies. Never. Quit. But sometimes they need a little help.

Families stick together through good times and bad. Our Huskie family is no different.


Throughout NIU's 125-year history our community has come together to celebrate milestones and triumphs, and we have been there to support each other during difficult and trying times. While much has changed at NIU over the past 125 years, the University's commitment to educational excellence and cultivating a strong supportive community has never wavered.


During these new and uncertain times, it is especially important for our Huskie family to unite and help keep NIU moving forward. We know we can do this together because Huskies. Never. Quit.


When you make a gift during the Huskies United event: 

  • You can help keep educational excellence, innovation, research, and artistry moving forward.
  • You can help NIU provide scholarships to students, ensuring they have the opportunity to attend, advance at, and graduate from NIU.
  • You can help give NIU the flexibility to quickly respond to a student's urgent or critical needs when they arise.

Most importantly, when you make a gift you are showing past, present, and future Huskies that no matter what, the Huskie family will always be there to help each other move forward together.
