June 16 is giving Tuesday at NSU

The Northwestern State University Foundation will host Giving Tuesday on June 16 to raise funds for student scholarships, academic programming and professional development for faculty.

“Circumstances this year have created many hardships for our students,” said Jill Bankston, CFRE, director of Development. “Although we will certainly accept donations to each area of need, we are hoping to get donations to three primary areas, which we have labeled as the President’s Priorities: the NSU Coronavirus Relief Fund, The Columns Fund and the Dr. Robert Alost Memorial Scholarship.”

“We have been able to help many students make rent, buy groceries and meet other basic needs, as well as ease the burden students have with tuition and fees,” Bankston added. “Our NSU supporters have been phenomenally generous during these last few difficult months and we are doing all that we can to continue that support.”
