NIU Recreation General Fund - 2021

Amount Raised: $200          Gifts: 2 

Recreation General Enhancement Fund

We have undergone several transitions since we began serving students and the community with opportunities to exercise, play, and practice all aspects of wellness. Today, we stand as NIU Recreation, a department within the Division of Intercollegiate Athletics, whose purpose is to inspire and support optimal health and well-being as a foundation for our entire community to flourish.

Like many other businesses, we are impacted by these challenging times and ask for your support to help us strive to make the greatest impact for our students, members, and communities we serve.  

We are confident our services are making a difference. Your funds will help us achieve more. 

Your donation will:

  • Support our wellness fund that allows members to request reduced-cost services including nutrition coaching, personal training, intramural sports, and outdoor programs. Our data shows 89% of our nutrition clients increased their nutrition quality of life score, with an average increase of 24%.
  • Allow us to sustain our most precious resource, our student employees, by supporting costs of providing well-being programming. Student-led programs provide financial support as well as career skills, while helping our community. We are proud to be the second largest employer of students on campus.
  • Assist our marketing efforts which may increase participation and impact the well-being of our community. These times more than ever, our resources and expertise can make a difference and marketing and signage may bring more awareness of our services.
  • Help us provide high-quality PPE and cleaning supplies to continue to maintain industry standards in protecting our members against the spread of COVID-19.
