NWC exceeds million-dollar goal

Northwestern College exceeded its million-dollar goal for the Northwestern Fund by raising $1.073 million during the 2011–12 fiscal year. More than 76 percent was given by members of the college’s Tower Society, made up of donors who give $1,000 or more annually to the college.

The Northwestern Fund is a component of the college’s Imagine Campaign; gifts to all the campaign components—as well as other college causes such as students’ short-term mission trips—exceeded $4.9 million in 2011–12.

The Northwestern Fund, which helps the college meet operational expenses, reduces tuition by around $900 per student. “We’re blessed that even in the excitement of a campaign, our donors are faithful givers to operational needs,” said President Greg Christy. “Northwestern alumni and friends have a real heart for our students and the increasing challenges young people face as they pay for college.”
