Why Give?

The fundamental nature of public higher education has changed. In recent years, funding from the state and federal governments has declined significantly. At the same time, to permit access for all qualified students, the university has worked diligently to limit tuition increases.

In today’s environment, the importance of private gifts from individuals, foundations, and corporations is critical to the success of our students and faculty.

With current funds already dedicated to sustain ongoing work, any increases in the quality and quantity of our programs must come from the private sector.

We look forward to partnering with our many friends and alumni to advance and ensure the quality of a Northern Arizona University degree in social and behavioral sciences. We appreciate your enthusiasm and generosity in advancing that mission.
