The Alumni Foundation came together in the 1960s as a group of dedicated alumni and community leaders who sought to raise and invest private funding for the University to augment its other revenue streams. The Northern Alumni Foundation is a legally separate 501(c)(3) charitable organization that functions as a part of MSU-Northern.
The Alumni Foundation focuses its efforts on donor stewardship through customer service and assurance in gift acceptance, processing and administration. The Alumni Foundation invests and allocates gift funds in a manner consistent with the purposes established by donors, and distributes dollars from its managed funds to support a wide variety of programs and activities throughout the University system.
