Northern Kentucky University Foundation Inc. receives and invests privately donated funds that enhance the quality of education at NKU.

The Foundation is an independent corporation directed and supervised by a Board of Directors. Each board member generously volunteers their time and expertise to ensure the growth and development of the university.

Through tax deductible donations and the work of the Foundation, NKU is able to offer a higher level of education that would not be possible through state assistance alone.
