Introducing NNU Give Day—a special, 24-hour event with the purpose of providing an opportunity for the NNU community to join together in supporting the university. This 24 hour event will take place ALL day, Thursday, September 24, 2015. The goal of this ambitious event is to make September 24, 2015 the greatest day of giving in NNU history. Visit nnu.edu/giveday for full details and to get involved.

The first ever NNU Give Day is an exciting, 24 hour, fundraising event that is all about supporting NNU. This online and on campus event will bring the NNU Community, both local and abroad, together in ways that were not even possible a few short years ago. Using social media, an online giving page, and live participation tracking the NNU Give Day will provide a way for everyone, no matter where they are, to interact to share their stories, reconnect with old friends, and support NNU. On September 24, 2015, everyone is encouraged to wear NNU gear and colors, share what NNU means to them on social media using the hashtag #NNUGive, and give to the University Fund to support this place and all that it does for our community.

Every gift, no matter the size is valuable and will be reflected on the live tracker on the Give Day website, but this day isn’t just about the numbers. The true purpose of this event is to give the NNU community an opportunity to come together around a common goal and support the university they love. So, even though making a donation is the only way to directly impact the total numbers for the day, there are plenty of other ways to get involved. Wearing NNU gear, following the NNU social media accounts on Facebook and Twitter, and using the hashtag #NNUGive to spread the word about the event are all invaluable contributions to the success of this event. The online aspect of this event makes it possible for alumni and supporters to join in the fun of the NNU Give Day no matter where they are located geographically. Locals are also encouraged to stop by and say hi in person. The physical headquarters for this event will be in the new lobby of the Learning Commons on the NNU Campus, and everyone is welcome.

Donating during the event has been made as quick and easy as possible. All it takes is to click on the “Give Now” button during the event, enter the required information, and hit submit. The team here at NNU has done everything possible to ensure that making a donation online is as easy, secure, and convenient as possible.
