Thank You for Making a Difference

Your generous contribution supports Nova Southeastern University as a leader in higher education and research. Give to the causes you’re passionate about—like scholarships for students with financial need through college, research and innovation centers, the NSU Art Museum, athletics, or the library.

Choose the type of gift the works best for you and your passion: onetime gifts, annual gifts, planned gifts, legacy gifts, or an endowed gift. The Office of Advancement Services will help direct your gift to the right place so you’re giving to something you believe in, that you know will make a difference. We'll advise you on the best way for you to give, including some you may not know about. You may have more to offer than you think!

The Campaign to Preeminence

Be a part of NSU’s Campaign to Preeminence—and help us deliver innovative solutions to today’s challenges and prepare the next generation of tomorrow’s leaders. Across NSU’s 14 colleges, its libraries, research and innovation centers, athletics programs, NSU Art Museum, and NSU University school, we are making an impact in the causes that mean the most to you. Campaign gifts and research funding will help NSU make even greater contributions in these essential areas of need and opportunity.
