Giving Benefits Both Students and the Supporter

Scholarships show profound support, give inspiration and empower students. Students who receive scholarships are given the reinforcement they need to complete their academic aspirations. Scholarships are two-sided. They not only touch the students’ lives and influence their futures in tangible ways but there are substantial benefits for the scholarship supporter.

NNU Students Receive Financial Aid

After having children, I never thought going back to school was possible, so being accepted to NNU and the nursing program was a huge blessing for my family and me. Scholarships made all the difference. When I discovered I had been awarded a scholarship, it meant I mattered, and someone believed in me.

Endowments & Scholarships

When students experience the financial support they need to attend a university without the burden of financial debt, they find success and complete their academic journeys. Scholarships become a vehicle that can drive these students closer to the academic finish line and give them the confidence to continue pursuing their degrees.

Planned Giving

When thinking about investing in the next generation, our team can help you intentionally create a legacy that supports and inspires those you love. Often, we can provide information that will bypass capital gains, increase income, and provide a charitable income tax deduction.

University Fund

The University Fund exists to make a Northwest Nazarene University education possible. A lifeline of the operating budget, the University Fund bridges some of the gap between the full cost of education at NNU and the amount actually paid by students.

Matching Gifts

Many employers sponsor matching gift programs and will match charitable contributions made by employees, retirees and spouses of employees. By taking advantage of a company’s matching gift benefit, you may be able to double, or even triple the amount of your contribution.

Idaho Tax Credit

Individuals may take up to 50% of a $1000 gift, married couples 50% of a $2000 gift, and Corporations up to 50 % of a $10,000 gift. In addition to the tax credit there are Federal and State Tax Savings when you itemize.

Foundation & Corporate Relations

Foundation and corporate partners make a significant impact at the University and throughout the region by ensuring that NNU continues to produce competent leaders and service-minded community members. We welcome the opportunity to partner with your corporation or foundation to help fulfill its philanthropic goals.
