Alumni Project 100

Have your say in a $10,000 project on campus! You decide!

Northwood University Alumni Project 100 is placing the power of philanthropy into your hands! Our goal is to recruit 100 Alumni who want to make a significant impact to the University by combining their donation with the rest of the members to award $10,000 each semester to the group of their choice within Northwood University.

How it Works

  1. Each member must commit to donating $100 per semester ($200 per year). The Alumni Project 100 group will meet and distribute the funds once each semester. Commit to three years ($600) and become a founding member of the Northwood University Alumni Project 100, which includes a brick with your name on it in Recognition Park.

  2. The donations will be given to approved Northwood University student groups/departments only.

  3. Each student organization/department that is under consideration will submit a one-page proposal to the Northwood Alumni Council. The Council will then choose the top three finalists for the live presentations.

  4. The top three proposals will then give their presentations live at the NU Alumni Project 100 meeting. The group will vote by ballot and the proposal with the majority of votes wins the competition. Although it may not be your first choice, you are still obligated to donate.

  5. All members will cast their vote via a voting app. If you are not able to attend the NU Alumni Project 100 meeting in person you may view the live presentations via video conferencing or you may simply vote after reviewing the top three written proposals.

  6. The winning proposal will be ineligible until the following year. All proposals that are not chosen will remain eligible for the next semester competition.

Donations must be in hand before your vote can count. We accept automatic deduction via ACH or credit card.

The cumulative amount of donations will be awarded to the winning proposal each semester.

Conflict of Interest

Members who are serving on a grant evaluation committee or who are members of the NU Alumni Project 100 are required to disclose potential conflicts of interest. All members are expected to act in an objective and fair manner. In particular, members are expected to refrain from any attempt to gain an unfair advantage for any particular grant applicant.
