The 1905 Society

Named in honor of the year Northwest was founded, The 1905 Society is Northwest’s premier giving society for annual gifts. The 1905 Society helps the University foster its tradition of philanthropy by recognizing its most generous supporters on an annual basis. Making an annual unrestricted gift of $1,000 or more allows donors to play an important role in the financial health of Northwest and makes a powerful statement about how much they value a Northwest education.

The 1905 Society provides funds for academic department initiatives not covered by tuition or state funding. The 1905 Society funds supports each academic unit by fostering excellence in education, teaching, research and resources coupled with ensuring the financial health and wellbeing for the University for years to come.
