Unprecedented times call for unprecedented incentives. As was originally outlined at the start of the pandemic, Huskies Invest and Season Ticket Members may receive:
Upgraded Huskie Athletic Fund (HAF) member benefits
Triple Priority Points (3 points per $100)
Potential for additional points via employer matching gifts
Huskies Invest provides a platform for all of us who are true passionate Huskie fans to help impact the lives of our student-athletes. All of us are so vital to the growth of these young people. Thanks to all of you who already support us and for those of you who may be new to the Huskie Family. Go Huskies!
Head Coach Women's Basketball
The main reason I give back is because the teams need it. I'm giving back to Huskies Invest because it's the right thing to do. It needs to start with us. Thank you and Go Huskies!
Head Coach Women's Gymnastics
We are Huskies, we do it the Hard Way – we have forever and always will. In regard to the season, when it comes, there's no question that me and my boys will be ready. Thank you for your support! Go Huskies!
I just want to say thank you to all of our past and present donors. One of the main reasons I chose to come to NIU was the amazing facilities and coaching staff. I've been able to achieve so many of my personal goals and team goals since being here. None of this would be possible without your donations. Thank you for your support and everything you do for the athletic department. Go Huskies!
I was fortunate 31 years ago to become graduate assistant athletic trainer here at Northern Illinois University. I received my master's degree and two of my three children are currently enrolled here at NIU – It's important to give back. In particular with Huskie Athletics, I give back to help support our student-athletes. It's important whether it's a little or a lot that everyone participates in Huskies Invest.

You have four (4) options:
Premium seat payments can be allocated as outlined above or left as unrestricted income to Athletics to assist in covering the numerous financial needs via the Huskies Invest campaign.
No. You will continue to have the option to renew your same seats in 2021 regardless of which option you choose in 2020. To discuss your options you may contact the Huskie Ticket Office at firstname.lastname@example.org or 815.753.PACK or the Huskie Athletic Fund at email@example.com or 815.753.1923.
Typically a donor would receive 1 point for every $100 donated whether that is to the Huskie Athletic Fund via unrestricted or sports specific gift, gift-in-kind, per seat contribution or for capital projects. We are offering 3 points this year which could have a significant impact should NIU still have capacity restrictions that require a seat selection process to take place either in the spring or next fall. The seat selection process would be conducted via the HAF priority points system. To learn more click here.
If a premium seat Season Ticket Member does not submit the form found on this website prior to Nov. 1, 2020, your seat related contribution will be considered a donation and used to support Huskies Invest in 2020 and providing you with triple priority points.
COVID-19 expenses along with the unanticipated loss in football related revenue this fall is having a devastating effect on our department so your support is critical. Any gift, no matter the size, in support of the Huskies Invest campaign will impact our student-athletes and allow of our teams and department the ability to compete when the time comes. To make a gift please call the Huskie Athletic Fund at 815.753.1923 or click on any of the GIVE NOW buttons on this page.
Yes! Many of our alumni and friends work for companies that offer generous matches to their employee contributions. Those matches amount to thousands of extra dollars for Huskie Athletics each year. Not only do these funds double your impact, you can earn additional priority points in the process.
