Northwestern Fund

What is the Northwestern Fund?

The Northwestern Fund goes beyond tuition, contributing to the whole education of the student. Your gift helps students receive rich educational experiences that equip them to apply their knowledge and faith as they pursue God's purpose for their lives.

The Northwestern Fund helps bridge the gap between what students pay and the actual cost of their education—so your gift reaches every student by providing essential funds needed each year for financial aid, technology, resources, operating expenses and more.
