Campaign Review

febinsider14As we mark the end of our year-long campus campaign, it’s time to celebrate the immense support you—the backbone of the university—have provided Northeastern. Whether you served as an advocate, volunteer, or supporter, your collaborative efforts have led to campus-wide success for Empower: The Campaign for Northeastern. Every gift—the gift of time, resources, expertise, or funds—has tremendous impact on our institution. Through the “power of we,” staff and faculty have backed campus initiatives and funds they feel passionately about. Whether it be faculty-led research, department programs, or student scholarship funds, all campus campaign participants have invested in the future of our university.

Your unwavering support of Northeastern today, and every day, is vital to ensure that future students, educators, and professionals alike understand what it means to be affiliated with such a remarkable university. Your efforts truly position us for future success. As we move forward with the monumental Empower campaign we remain thankful for your meaningful support and the change it may effect on the Northeastern community.

To show our appreciation for your tireless dedication, we have created a “Year in Review” to recap your successes, creativity and enthusiasm.

Thank you!

Campus Campaign Wrap-up

What is the Campus Campaign?faculty

The Campus Campaign is an organized fundraising effort that encourages each of us, current and retired faculty and staff members alike, to support a program or initiative within the campaign’s three strategic priorities—students, faculty, and innovation in education and research—that speaks to our own interests and passions. Collectively, our gifts will impact society—by influencing students’ lives, advancing the frontiers of research, or enriching campus life. Such gifts also raise the value of a Northeastern degree.

Why does Northeastern need faculty and staff support?

When we stand behind the university, we send a powerful message to others. Our support signals confidence in Northeastern and its future. Collectively, our participation inspires philanthropy from other individuals as well as corporations, foundations, and government agencies.

How much should I give? Will my gift be confidential?

Giving by faculty and staff is entirely optional and voluntary. Every gift matters, no matter the size. A robust rate of participation is the ultimate goal. Should donors wish their gifts to be confidential, they should contact Charlotte Troyanowski, Director of Donor Relations at Donors whose annual gifts total $1,000+ may be included in the university’s honor roll of donors unless they wish to be anonymous.

How does payroll deduction work?

Payroll deduction is an easy way to make a gift. When you enroll in payroll deduction, your gift is automatically deducted from your paycheck in the amount and time frame you specify. You can set up a payroll deduction here.

Alternatively, you can submit a paper form, downloadable here.

Can I make a gift online?

Gifts may be made with a credit card at a secure site online. Visit our giving form here.

Is my gift tax-deductible?

Gifts to Northeastern are tax-deductible to the fullest extent of state and federal laws. To explore the tax implications of your donation, please consult a tax adviser and/or legal counsel.

My spouse works for a matching gift company. How might this help Northeastern?

If your spouse’s company participates in a matching gift program, you can double or even triple your contribution to Northeastern. If your spouse’s employer is a participant, simply enclose the company’s matching gift form, which is typically available on the company’s website, along with your check, made payable to Northeastern University.
