Giving to Northwestern is a priority for me because I’ve directly seen the value of my NU education on my career—Northwestern has opened doors for me. Also, many of my lifelong friends are from Northwestern and supporting our school together, financially and at social and sporting events, helps keep us connected.


Northwestern made an impact on my personal and my professional life—an impact on who I am.


Giving is critical because alumni participation is a signal of our satisfaction with our University. When you make a gift, you’re giving Northwestern a vote of confidence in both the quality of your experience and the direction the University is taking. You’re saying, “This place was meaningful to me, I am grateful for my time at Northwestern, and I care about its future.”


Giving to Northwestern is about supporting what’s important to you. I’m personally excited about the new entrepreneurial initiatives and courses; these advances in education and programming enable Northwestern to remain competitive, bring in the most exciting professors, and attract the best students.


The alumni who came before us invested in new, innovative programs that enriched our time as students. We reaped those benefits, and now it’s our turn to continue the tradition and help new programs to flourish for tomorrow’s Wildcats.


Each of you has your own reason for supporting Northwestern, and I hope you will join me in making a gift by August 31 to honor that. Make your gift now to make it all possible.
