NORTHEASTERN’S FIRST-EVER GIVING DAY WAS AN INCREDIBLE 24 HOURS!

We want to thank all of you—alumni, spouses, partners, friends, parents, faculty, staff, and students—whose enthusiasm and generosity made a positive impact on our university. In just one day, we united as one Husky Nation to provide the best experience possible for our students, our faculty and our entire Northeastern community.

Your support of Giving Day has made so much possible, and for that we truly thank you.

As a token of our appreciation, we've created some Northeastern-themed downlodable calendars and screen savers so you can show your Husky pride all year long!
