Ways To Give

There are many ways to make a gift to NKU - cash, a planned gift, stocks, and more. Learn how you can make an impact today. 

Alumni Involvement

Attend an event, join a council, advocate – these are just a few ways to get involved. Find the choice that’s right for you.

Planned Giving

Without visionaries like you, NKU and many of our students would not be here. Learn more about how to make a planned gift.

Advocate

Urge officials to continue to fix the funding disparity – contact, meet, and build relationships with legislators. Learn about our Invest in Success Campaign.
