Your impact is meaningful

Northeastern is climbing. We’ve made the greatest rise in The U.S. News & World Report rankings of best universities—from #96 in 2008 to #40 in 2017. Yet our endowment stands at $796 million. In comparison, most of our peer and aspirant schools in the top 40 have endowments exceeding $2 billion. Our need for resources is clear.

That’s why a gift of any amount makes a meaningful difference to CAMD and helps us compete with other top institutions. Since 2012, CAMD has received $7.3 million in gifts from alumni, parents, friends, and organizations—with gifts of $100 or less to Northeastern totaling almost $1 million last year. Your gift, no matter the size, can make a big impact.
