Beginning at 4:25 p.m. on June 24, the NIU Foundation will host Huskies United, an opportunity for members of the Huskie family to come together and help move NIU forward!

In recognition of the year NIU was chartered, 1895, Huskie Nation will have 1,895 minutes to come together and show their Huskie Pride by supporting NIU students and the University's top priorities. You can help ensure this day is a great success by sharing your passion for NIU with your networks and inspiring others to follow your example and make a gift to one of the highlighted funds. 

 

Days of giving are “digital pep rallies” designed to increase donor participation (particularly new and younger donors). They also help ignite online communities’ pride by inspiring them to share why they love their alma mater. Days of giving are most successful when a large number of alumni and friends are helping create buzz and encouraging their peers to get involved. 

 

We are asking Ambassadors to be NIU’s digital leaders, sharing messages and creating excitement about Huskies United before and during the campaign. Your help spreading awareness within your network (using your preferred forms of communication – email, text, phone, social media, etc.) will be truly appreciated.

 

All Ambassadors will have access to an individualized online “Ambassador Dashboard”, a digital engagement toolkit, and a live training prior to the event. The Ambassador Dashboard allows Ambassadors to track their impact for the day and contains each ambassador’s personalized giving link, which can be used to encourage others to give.

 

Will you help us unleash Huskie Pride across our community of alumni, parents, faculty, staff, students and friends? Questions? Contact Liz McKee M.S.Ed. ’14 at Lmckee1@niu.edu or 815-753-7400.
