What is Student Philanthropy Month?

NAU Student Philanthropy month is an initiative that engages students in philanthropy by connecting them to the NAU Foundation crowdfunding platform, JACKSfunder.  

Through November 14, NAU undergraduate, graduate, and doctoral students from Flagstaff Mountain and Phoenix Biomedical campuses are leading JACKSfunder projects to advance the mission of their student club or organization, support student success, and build community engagement, statewide.  

The Lumberjacks leading these projects represent NAU sports clubs, performing arts and literature groups, academic and professional honors societies, and identity and culture-based organizations. 

Your #AxeOfKindness supports these groups and their goals to fund sports equipment, travel expenses, competition and conference fees, student events and activities supplies, culturally appropriate books for community literacy projects, and a speaking series on Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Justice.

There are over 400 student groups and organizations at NAU, engaging thousands of students weekly.  A gift to any of these student-led Jacksfunder projects will have an immediate, positive impact on the NAU student experience.

Together, Lumberjacks, past and present, are achieving their aspirations. Thank you for your support!
