NMU Foundation supports students and university

The NMU Foundation—the official gift-receiving agency of Northern Michigan University—provides guidance on how donors, alumni, and friends of the University can help to meet the ongoing needs of students.

Through various giving opportunities like research, scholarships, academics and programming, and the Northern Fund, the NMU Foundation supports students by providing access to an affordable and excellent education while also supporting the university. The Northern Fund supports the university in three critical ways:
1. Enhancing academic excellence and the student experience by upgrading facilities, tools, and technology
2. Taking advantage of student and faculty opportunities as they arise (including funds for travel, scholarships, and internships)
3. Meeting priority objectives like expanding research, programming, and facilities

Brad Canale, CEO of the NMU Foundation, is on the InvestUP Board of Directors.

As a part of our commitment to the Upper Peninsula, we collaborate with partners to share some of the most compelling stories about business and job growth across the region. Our goal through these stories is to get at the heart of what makes the U.P. unique — and to ensure these stories travel beyond our peninsula and broadly illustrate why the UP is the place to live and work.
