High school athletics play a vital role in fostering teamwork, discipline, and physical health among students. Participation in sports helps develop character, leadership skills, and a sense of belonging. However, despite their significance, high school athletic programs often face chronic underfunding due to various factors. Budget constraints, competing educational priorities, limited resources, and economic challenges are major reasons for this underfunding. This shortfall often falls squarely on the shoulders of our programs and families in our community. If your Coach asks for a Program Donation, there are specific reasons for doing so and your generous contribution allows for ALL of our student-athletes to have an opportunity to reap the benefits and rewards of an enriching experience.
In an effort to make Program Donation financial transactions easier on families, we are now accepting program donations virtually. No need to give a check or cash to your Coach for their Athletic Donation.
Simply click the link below, follow the instructions at the top of the page, find your student-athlete's sport or use the search bar to find it, and submit your payment information.
Thank you for continually supporting NU Athletics and impacting the overall experience and potential benefits that student-athletes could gain from participating in these programs.
