NNU Legacy Partners

Legacy Partners are alumni and friends of the University who include Northwest Nazarene University in an estate plan-a gift through a will, trust, insurance, retirement assets, or life income agreement. NNU Legacy Partners demonstrate the deepest level of commitment to NNU. NNU Legacy Partners are a distinguished group of supporters whose combined commitments help ensure a strong and secure future for Northwest Nazarene University in the decades to come.

Gifts bestowed through NNU Legacy Partners support capital improvements, endowment growth, much needed scholarships, and academic programs.

On behalf of the students, faculty, and staff of NNU, we invite you to become a Legacy Partner. By including NNU in your estate plan, you will make an enduring contribution to the mission and future of Christ-centered, academic excellence.
