Click the Donate Now! link to make a tax-deductible donation that supports STEM education programs through the NIU Foundation. 

Just follow the six easy steps below. Wait...what? Six steps?! STEMfest does not have its own listing on the Foundation menu, so you have to click through. It's not as hard as it looks. Really. And just think of the sense of accomplishment you'll feel when you're done!

  1. On the "Make a Gift Now" page, go to the "I’d like my gift designated to:" prompt. Select the "a specific area" checkbox.
  2. In the window that appears, go to the "Choose your areas of support" column and click "NIU Foundation."
  3. In the "Select a fund to support" column, click the "Don't see it? Type it here..." field and type STEMfest.
  4. In the "Specify amount and review" column, type the dollar amount that you want to donate. Click "Continue."
  5. When you are returned to the "Make a Gift Now" page, go to the Billing Information section and enter your information in all required fields.
  6. Click "Proceed to enter credit card information" to provide your payment information on our secure website.

We really appreciate your support!
