basket.pngWith Northwestern’s fiscal year coming to an end on August 31, we are calling on all Wildcats to make their annual gift! You can make a gift of any amount to any area of the University that is meaningful to you.


To make the next couple weeks even more exciting, eventful and successful, Northwestern has launched a giveaway and referral program — an opportunity for you to spread the word about the importance of alumni giving and enter to win great prizes at the same time.


When you make a gift by August 14, you will be entered to win one of 12 Purple Prizes — baskets that include Northwestern sweatshirts, stadium blankets, frames, mugs and more, valued at about $300 each.

Additionally, you can refer one friend and ask them to enter your unique referral code in the Referral Code box (on the bottom of the online gift form) when they make their gift by August 14. If that friend makes a gift and uses your referral code, you’ll both be entered to win prizes. The more friends you refer, the more chances you have to win!


If you made your gift before August 3, we emailed you a unique 10-digit referral code. If you don’t know your referral code, call us at 800-222-5603 to find out what it is.

The bottom line is this: If each of you got just one person to give any amount, then we'd exceed our goal. It's as simple as that.
