Golf Endowment

The NU Golf Endowment will secure the future of Northwestern Golf.

The NU Golf Endowment will provide stability and a sustaining source of revenue that will ensure the financial future of both programs. Reaching the endowment goal will allow us to provide our student-athletes the highest level of training and competition, as well as an unmatched academic and athletic experience in perpetuity.

A fully funded endowment at $10,000,000, with an approximate 5% payout, will annually provide our golf programs with $500,000 and future financial sustainability.

Amount raised as of :

“College athletics faces its greatest time of uncertainty as the landscape evolves and changes. The NU Golf Endowment will create stability no matter what the future brings.

Our Northwestern Golf community has worked diligently to establish these successful programs and my goal is to build off that amazing progress and secure the future growth and excellence of Northwestern Golf.”

Goal: $10,000,000
