The Family Philanthropy Roadmap

Gifts of all kinds increase the power of our Northeastern community

We encourage each student to create their own path to success; sometimes the journey will look like an interstate highway, while other times it will look like winding back roads. To that end, we want our Husky families to experience their own journey, from Convocation to Commencement. Here is a sample roadmap for your philanthropic relationship with the university.

YEAR ONE
Become a Family Fellow

Make an initial gift to the university to become a Family Fellow, and take advantage of all the benefits of beingan active Husky family. Parents who are interested in volunteerism can explore ways to provide co-op opportunities, host events for other families, and become advocates for Northeastern.

THE JOURNEY BEYOND COMMENCEMENT

Northeastern will continue to support you and your student throughout your lifetimes—through networking opportunities, career support, and more. We encourage you to remain involved as a Husky family.

Our university is consistently growing and adapting to meet the needs of our alumni and their future employers. Your continued investment and involvement allow us to stay at the forefront of innovation in higher education, enabling our students to be bold, independent thinkers who help shape the future.

Whether your roadmap is a highway or a less direct path, we hope it will always lead you back to Northeastern.
