Support The Cats

Supporting NU Football

Wildcat Nation:

For more than 25 years the NGN has been, and will continue to be, a driving force behind the success of Northwestern Football and ensures a world-class experience for our student-athletes. The NGN is the only organization that directs 100% of its raised funds to Wildcats football.

Over the last several years, these investments have been used to:

  • Purchase equipment to ensure the safety and well-being of our student-athletes
  • Provide virtual reality opportunities which allow off-field, non-impact practice and game preparation
  • Fund special projects for our football program to achieve excellence on and off the field

Membership in the NGN allows you to have a direct impact on the Wildcats and unparalleled access to Chicago's Big Ten Team. The NGN has been an invaluable asset to our football program and we need your support to ensure the excellence of Wildcats football continues for many years to come.

Go ’Cats,

Pat Fitzgerald
