NU Parents and Friends,
This web page has been created to facilitate funds contributed toward the general operation of your favorite student organization. Unlike gifts or donations, these funds may be used to support your student or to fund activities directly, such as:
- Student travel and lodging for group activities
- Competition/Entrance fees
- Conference fees
- Membership dues
- Food and beverage
- Costume and equipment purchases or rentals
Funding provided through this website is not tax deductible as a charitable contribution for federal income tax purposes. You will not receive a tax receipt from the University or the student group for this assistance. Use of the funds will be limited to the expenditures that support the group's activities. Additionally, they may not be donated to external entities, such as other charitable organizations or political campaigns. Student organizations receiving funding will be billed any fees associated with processing these funds--e.g., payment card processing, vendor, etc.
To provide support for a registered student organization, please first determine the category that best describes its primary activities. Enter the amount of your support in the appropriate category and click on the green SUPPORT AN RSO NOW bar at the bottom of the page. You will be able to select the name of the student organization from a drop down menu on the payment page. If you don't find the student group listed, please contact us at NorrisBoxOffice@northwestern.edu.
To make a tax-receipted donation to a student organization, college, department, or program, please proceed to Northwestern University's We Will gift page or CATalyzer program.
