Your loyal annual support helps to ensure Northeastern’s position as a global university system that empowers learning and discovery on a worldwide scale.

NLS members set a philanthropic example for fellow alumni and play a vital role in the university’s continued success in experiential learning and use-inspired research, built on a tradition of global engagement.


Gifts of any amount, to any area of Northeastern, count toward your NLS membership. Consecutive years of giving are counted by fiscal year, which runs from July 1 to June 30. Alumni donors must give for a minimum of two consecutive years to qualify.

Qualifying Levels

There are three qualifying levels for the Northeastern Loyalty Society:

  • 2-4 years of consecutive giving
  • 5-19 years of consecutive giving
  • 20+ years of consecutive giving

Member Courtesies
