The Family Fellows Program

Celebrating Families, Recognizing Impact

Partner with Northeastern as a Family Fellow. Our most loyal parent donors are dedicated to enhancing the student experience and advocating for Northeastern’s future through their family philanthropy.  


The Family Fellows Program

Parents are an integral part of our community, directly enriching and supporting the student experience. Family Fellows commit an annual gift of $10,000 or more to support the university while establishing their family legacy and modeling philanthropy to their students. Since 2014, Family Fellows have supported priorities such as internships, research awards, and  scholarships; have enhanced music and maker space facilities, global co-ops, and athletics; and have provided gap funding for student ventures.


Joining the FFP

Should you decide to join the FFP, you will:

  • Meet students and faculty who benefit from your philanthropy
  • Engage in university life, locally and globally
  • Attend events with Northeastern’s top leaders
  • Motivate other parents to join the Family Fellows
