Giving matters. Your philanthropy does so much every year.
But don’t just take it from us; read the stories of some of the people whose lives you’ve touched.

"At Northeastern, I met some of the brightest students and professors, who came from various backgrounds across the globe. My interactions with them really played an imperative role in broadening my perspective. I was exposed to a whole new range of ideas which, I believe, greatly influenced my ability to think in an innovative and creative manner."

“There’s so much you can learn outside of the classroom. You have to get out of your comfort zone and immerse yourself in a culture different from your own. That was the big part of the reason I chose Northeastern. The university makes study abroad and global opportunities more accessible than any other school I could find.”
“I am pursing a dual concentration in finance and management. But when I’m not in class, I spend most of my time at Matthews Arena as a member of the women’s ice hockey team—where I am an assistant captain. I’ve grown into a better leader and person. All of this wouldn’t be possible without the support I receive from my scholarship, so I thank you.”

“Your support allows my research group to take our work to a qualitatively new level because it enable us to take a longer-term view—a rare opportunity. We’ve been able to pursue core method development and implementation efforts that will make our tools more sustainable and more competitive into the future.”
"At Northeastern, learning isn't limited to the classroom. My involvement in the university's student-led venture accelerator, IDEA, has provided me with the ability to be a part of helping enthusiastic entrepreneurs walk through the lab with an idea and leave months later with a functional concept and business opportunity. Being able to take part in the growth, excitement, and sometimes failures of each of our over 200 ventures in our program is experiential learning at its best and has had the most impact on me throughout my Northeastern experience."
"Being a part of campus life and my sorority, Alpha Epsilon Phi, has helped to shape who I am and helped to bring me closer to the Northeastern community. I've not only made some of my closest friends through it, but also have learned more about myself through the leadership opportunities it offers."

"Campus life is what makes my Northeastern experience so impactful, specifically the fraternity and sorority life. Not only has it give me my best friends but it has also allowed me to push myself as a leader and overall student. Fraternity and sorority life has allowed me to take on roles that I did not think I would ever be capable of and become a better student, friend, and overall person."
