Donation Opportunities

Why make a gift to the Linguistics Department?

Without the donations of our loyal and generous alum, the department wouldn’t be able to accomplish all our development plans.  Your gift helps to ensure that we continue to provide current students with some of the best resources.

Here are just a few of the many resources made possible through the generous donations of our loyal alum.

  • Donations help keep our technology up to date.  In the past year we have used these funds to pay for a new color printer to help students distribute flyers for department events and support their presentations at the conferences.
  • Donations allow us to organize student panels with alum to learn more about career opportunities.
  • Looking forward, we are hoping to purchase some new furniture for the house, including new computer desks, laptop workstations, and conference tables and chairs.

Donors can designate gifts to specific allocations like the Linguistics Department by indicating their preference on the memo line of the check, or they can attach a brief note. Please visit the Campaign for Northwestern WE WILL for information about donating.
