Because of you, NAU students succeed
The Northern Arizona University Foundation exists to ensure students at NAU have every opportunity to thrive, succeed, and create positive change in our communities. The Foundation has never been in a stronger position to support this vital mission.
Private gifts, prudent investment strategies, an outstanding Board, and a dedicated team of advancement professionals have helped the Foundation to achieve unprecedented growth during the past decade. Because of you, the market value of the NAU Foundation endowment investment pool has more than tripled, from $54 million in 2006 to $187 million in 2018.
This growth is critical in helping Northern Arizona University positively impact the lives of our students in their academic endeavors, as well as our faculty in their teaching, research, and public service. It means we can help generations of NAU students write new stories of success through access to scholarships and fellowships, world renowned faculty, meaningful research opportunities, and more.
This progress has been overseen by an outstanding Board of Directors. Their leadership and philanthropic support has been nothing short of transformative.
Thank you for your interest in the Northern Arizona University Foundation, and for your commitment to NAU.
