NU Student-Athletes for Equity Coalition Fund
Mission: The collaboration between the Northeastern Athletes for Equity Coalition (NAEC) and the Northeastern University Black Athlete Caucus (NUBAC) was established to harness the power of our unique student athlete network to provide an educational and community-building opportunity for student athletes so that we can play our part in creating a more equitable society. This joint fund supports student selected nonprofit organizations in the Boston area looking to make strides in diversifying athletics and supporting underrepresented and underserved young student athletes.
Recent events in our world have ignited robust momentum in the campaign against violence and systemic racism towards Black people. As student athletes, it is our responsibility to put the challenges we face in athletic competition aside to take on the existential challenges that face our world. We are a united alliance of diverse and motivated young people who are striving to make an exceptional impact on the world around us. Through this joint fund, we wish to provide student athletes with the opportunity to learn more about the process of philanthropy and foster a lifelong relationship with giving. This effort challenges all of Northeastern’s teams to raise funds from alumni, friends, and family to support social justice efforts that address a range of responses to systemic racism. All of the benefiting nonprofits will be student athlete selected with the guidance of Northeastern’s Social Impact Lab.
