In our 125th year, more than ever, we want to remember who we are. We are innovators, artists, problem-solvers and changemakers. We are “Thousands Strong” and shaping the world together.


We need you to support our "Thousands Strong" Day of Giving as an ambassador who shares our important message via e-mail, phone, text, and social media to create excitement about the Day of Giving before and during the event. Your help spreading awareness within your network will be invaluable.


All ambassadors will be given training and a toolkit which includes sample posts, images and e-mail text. Ambassadors will also receive their own personalized link to encourage others to give. During the DOG, you will be able to track your impact (and note who to thank!) on the ambassador dashboard.


After the "Thousands Strong" kickoff concludes at 7:30 p.m. on Wednesday, Nov. 18, NIU will launch into the "Thousands Strong" Day of Giving (DOG) which will run through 11:59 p.m. on Thursday, Nov. 19. During this time the Huskie community will come together to support the NIU Foundation’s incredible scholarship and fundraising opportunities. We are asking our alumni and friends to dig deep and pull together to show that we are truly "Thousands Strong" by making a donation or being a champion as a Day of Giving ambassador for this important day of philanthropy. 


Will you help us unleash Huskie Pride across our community of alumni, parents, faculty, staff, students and friends? Will you help us be "Thousands Strong" during this Day of Giving?
