NAU Giving Day
NAU's first Giving Day!

Lumberjacks around the world are proud, generous, and loyal. This is why alumni, students, parents, friends, fans, neighbors, NAU faculty, and staff—will come together on May 1, 2019 for OneDay. OneNAU. — a 24-hour online fundraising event honoring NAU. On this day, you are supporting the schools, programs, and causes that are important to you and more importantly the Lumberjack students these funds directly impact. When you give during our first, annual Giving Day, your gift will go further and make a difference for generations of Jacks. NAU is strong and its strength is amplified when we come together as One — we are Lumberjacks!

 

Why, May 1, 2019? Did you know that NAU was officially named Northern Arizona University on May 1, 1966? Now is the time to honor the renaming, celebrate NAU’s history, and influence on the transformative experience of a Lumberjack education.
