Make a Major Difference!

The spring semester is the time to make a difference directly in your student's major. Parent donations help to fund travel and research opportunities, purchase state-of-the art equipment, provide hands-on professional experiences, support scholarships, and so much more.

Not only do these opportunities give students a competitive edge both during school and as they enter the workforce, they continue to build the reputation of NAU--a reputation that follows students well beyond graduation.

This spring, you may receive a call from a knowledgeable student, who will update you on these opportunities and ask for your support. Please take the time to talk with one of our students and consider making a gift to your student's major.

Gifts to any area of the University can also be made online or mailed to:

Northern Arizona University Advancement
PO Box 4094
Flagstaff, AZ 86011
