About

Take part in #LivePurpleGiveGold

“Living Purple” means celebrating the history, experience and spirit of UNI. “Giving Gold” means supporting UNI with your time, talent and treasure. On April 11, we bring these two expressions together to celebrate UNI and impact the lives of students for years to come with #LivePurpleGiveGold. 

Did you know you can support ANY area of campus? That's right! Any gift invests in the success of our students and enables UNI to help create their brightest tomorrow.

Don't know where to give? Supporting the Annual Fund enhances the experiences of our students, allows flexibility to focus on urgent needs and enables new avenues of teaching and resources on campus. 

 

Help us reach our goal of 1,876 donors

Panther alumni and friends, can you help us reach our goal of 1,876 donors on April 11? Let's show the world that Panthers support each other and invest in the success of our students!

Please make your gift and share your UNI story on social media using #LivePurpleGiveGold to maximize your impact. Thank you for your ever loyal support!
