Drive for 25

With over 230,000 NIU alumni across the United States and less than 1,200 active Huskie Athletic Fund donors, it is our goal to increase membership to at least 2,500 in order to provide our student-athletes the best possible experience while at NIU. The Huskie Athletic Fund is not able to make contact with all alumni and fans of NIU so we are asking dedicated and connected Huskies for referrals. Refer friends, colleagues or family members for as little as $25.
