Support the Northland Difference.
Philanthropy is based on voluntary action for the common good. It is a tradition of giving and sharing that is primary to the quality of life. To assure that philanthropy merits the respect and trust of the general public, and that donors and prospective donors can have full confidence in the not-for-profit organizations and causes they are asked to support, we declare that all donors have these rights:
Developed by: American Association of Fund-Raising Council (AAFRC), Association for Healthcare Philanthropy (AHP), Council for the Advancement and Support of Education (CASE), National Society of Fund Raising Executives (NSFRE).
Initial endorsers: Independent Sector, National Catholic Development Conference (NCDN), National Committee on Planned Giving (NCPG), National Council for Resource Development (NCRD), United Way of America.
Gifts of appreciated stock or securities (held more than a year) in publicly traded companies can be a great way to support Northland College. The allowable deduction for a gift of securities is based on the securities’ market value, not the donor’s cost, and no tax is imposed on the capital gain.
Gifts of publicly traded securities can be made either by delivering the certificates to the College (in person or by mail) or by transfer of ownership through a broker. If you intend to contribute securities to the College, we ask that you please call or email our Institutional Advancement Office staff to alert the College and to expedite delivery and gift crediting.
Electronic Transfer of Securities Instructions
To transfer securities to the College electronically, i.e., via Depository Trust Company (DTC), provide the DTC transfer instructions below to your broker. The securities will be transferred directly into the College’s gift account at its custodian bank.
The process works as follows:
In order for the College to properly credit the gift, it is important that you or your broker notify us of the gift and its intended purpose, and that the broker reference your name in the DTC transfer instructions.

Give the gift that makes a difference every day. Tuition and endowment earnings don’t cover the costs of a Northland education. Gifts to the Annual Fund meet 25% of the general operating costs of the College, keeping tuition affordable.
Contributing to the annual fund demonstrates our community’s commitment to the college and instills confidence in other funders like grant-makers and foundations. Annual gifts may be directed to support the ongoing needs of a specific Northland program or department. Gifts can be one time or recurring monthly.
Northland’s biggest need is scholarship gifts. More than 99% of Northland students receive financial aid, 41% are from low-income (Pell Grant eligible) families and 25% are the first in their family to attend a four-year college. Every dollar given to the Annual Scholarship Fund goes directly to offsetting student tuition. With a gift of $5,000 or more you can name your scholarship award.
Contributing to an existing scholarship endowment, or starting a scholarship endowment of your own, is a powerful way to make a lasting impact on our student body. With $25,000 or more, you can name your scholarship. Northland will invest your gift as part of our carefully managed endowment. A portion of the annual earnings will provide funding for a student who meets your criteria for support.
