Support The Cats

Supporting NU Football

Wildcat Nation:

For more than 25 years the NGN has been, and will continue to be, a driving force behind the success of Wildcats football and helps ensure a world-class experience for our student-athletes. The NGN is the only organization that directs 100% of its raised funds to Northwestern football.

Over the last several years, these investments have been used to:

  • Purchase equipment to ensure the safety and well-being of our student-athletes, as well as enhance player performance
  • Upgrade our practice facilities to maximize the experience for student-athletes and recruits
  • Purchase the technology necessary to amplify coaching effectiveness
  • Fund special projects for our football program to achieve excellence on and off the field (HD cameras, weight room enhancements, iPads, etc.)

Membership in the NGN allows you to have a direct impact on the Wildcats and unparalleled access to Chicago’s Big Ten Team. You will find in this brochure a list of opportunities to connect with the football program that are available only to NGN members.

The NGN has been an invaluable asset to our football program and we need your support to ensure the excellence of Wildcats football continues for many years to come.

Go ’Cats,

Pat Fitzgerald
