Double the impact of your membership!

On January 1, 2016, Northeastern Illinois University launched the Goodwin Gift Challenge. Your membership will automatically be counted in the challenge. 

Alumnus Daniel L. Goodwin gave $1 million to Northeastern in 2014. Now, he challenges alumni and friends to raise $500,000 every year in 2016, 2017 and 2018. If we do, he'll give $500,000 for each of those years. That's a total matching challenge of $1.5 million!

Mr. Goodwin's total commitment of $2.5 million will benefit the newly named Daniel L. Goodwin College of Education to support scholarships, programs and lectures. 

If you do not want your membership to be counted in this wonderful challenge, please contact the Office of Alumni Relations at 773-442-4210 or e-mail
