Giving Tuesday exceeds expectations

The Northwestern State University Foundation raised $52,671 during the Giving Tuesday event that began Tuesday, June 16 and concluded on June 18, the birthday of NSU President Dr. Chris Maggio. “We exceeded our goal of $25,000,” said Director of Development Jill Bankston, CFRE. Dollars raised were designated to go towards the President’s Priorities, which includes the NSU Coronavirus Assistance Fund, the Columns Fund and the Dr. Robert Alost Memorial Scholarship.

Other significant donations were designated to go towards the John G. Williams Memorial Scholarship, the Wes Rollo Memorial Fishing Scholarship, the Margaret Kilcoyne Professorship and to assist academic departments on campus.
