We Value the Power of Your Vision

From a small teachers' college in 1899 to a major university and research institution today, Northern Arizona University has thrived—creating and advancing our future through the generosity of our alumni and friends.

What future do you envision for NAU? When you include NAU in your will or other planned gift, you ensure the university's progression from excellence to prominence. Your gift will enable an education that can transform lives and the world.

Your commitment to a world class education—one that inspires students with extraordinary opportunities for learning and discovery—is essential to NAU's continued excellence.

You can create a legacy around that vision through your will, revocable trust, charitable trust, charitable gift annuity, life insurance, or retirement account.

We invite you to contact us for information about estate planning and to learn how to realize your vision through student scholarships and programs, faculty enrichment projects, and other educational initiatives.

If you have already included the NAU Foundation in your will or other planned gift, please let us know by filling in our enrollment form so that we may recognize you as a member of the Heritage Society. Your membership inspires others and together we can forge the future.
