Donor Spotlight

Two for One: OM&IS Pride Challenge

Chris & Lorraine Millington, longtime friends of the College of Business, have created a unique opportunity for all Operations Management & Information Systems (OM&IS) alumni, family and friends—a two for one challenge. Any new donor has an opportunity to make a donation to the Department of OM&IS and the Millingtons will donate twice the amount—that's a 200% return on your investment. For instance, donate $100 and the Millingtons will donate $200. The $300 donation will support areas such as:

  • Student Scholarships
  • Academic Research
  • Technology Improvements
  • Faculty Development

This opportunity is available through December 31, 2014. With your help, you can make a difference in the OM&IS Department. Act now as challenge funds are going fast. To take advantage of the OM&IS Pride Challenge, go to niufoundation.org/give.
