Giving to COB
We invite you to learn more about supporting the College of Business. From annual giving to planned annuities, we offer many ways for you to help current and future students succeed at NIU and in their business careers.
Professorships and Fellowships
Professorships and fellowships are awarded to tenured faculty who are distinguished in scholarship, teaching and research. Private support allows the university to provide the additional salary and research support needed to attract, develop, retain and recognize its most deserving faculty, which in turn benefits NIU students and programs.
Naming opportunities allow you to specify college endowment area(s) for your contribution (student services, technology or faculty development). Through this endowment approach, your gift becomes an enduring contribution to the college with the principal remaining untouched.
Endowed scholarships provide financial assistance to students of academic merit and/or financial need. Your support through scholarships helps the College of Business attract a diverse and high-quality student body.
Making a gift through your estate plan or will is relatively simple and offers you many options. Learn how you can deepen your commitment to NIU and help pass on your values to loved ones.
Other Ways to Give
We provide a variety of opportunities for you to support the college's goals and ongoing initiatives. From annual giving to planned annuities, there's a method to fit just about any budget.
