Bearcats Helping Bearcats

Donations are being sought for three efforts at Northwest that make an immediate and impactful difference to students: the Pay It Forward Fund, the Bearcat Food Pantry and the We Gotchya Fund. Information about these efforts can be found below.

Pay It Forward Fund

The Pay It Forward Fund provides assistance to Northwest students who are struggling financially while engaging them in the resources available to be successful financially, socially and academically. Such purposes include, but are not limited to, supplemental textbooks and course supplies, unexpected medical costs, tuition assistance and emergency transportation needs.

Bearcat Food Pantry

The Bearcat Food Pantry provides a source of food and necessities for Northwest students and employees. Items include canned, boxed and commercially packaged items that are in store-quality condition and are not out dated. It also includes items such as canned fruits and vegetables, boxed macaroni and cheese and packaged goods such as ramen noodles. The Bearcat Food Pantry also offers personal hygiene items, including soap, shampoo, toilet tissue, feminine products and toothpaste. These are store-quality unopened packages.

We Gotchya Fund

We Gotchya Fund covers expenses related to offering free menstruation products in academic restrooms to help ensure students do not miss class due to period-related issues.
