What is Catalyzer?
Northwestern’s Catalyzer is a fundraising tool that enables organizations to raise money to pursue meaningful projects that make an impact—socially, culturally, and globally. Catalyzer propels projects and programs to great heights, thanks in large part to contributions from generous donors. With Catalyzer, the sky’s the limit. With Catalyzer, student projects will go the distance.
Is my donation tax deductible?
Yes. You will receive a receipt for your donation. If you select a contribution level that has a thank you gift, the cash value of the gift will be deducted from the total amount of the contribution.
Does my entire donation to Catalyzer benefit the student group?
Yes; 100 percent of gifts made through Catalyzer directly support the designated student project, whether or not the project reaches its fundraising goal.
Does my gift count toward the campaign and/or my reunion class gift?
Your gift will count toward We Will. The Campaign for Northwestern and, if you are in a 2018 Reunion class, you will receive credit toward your class gift.
When will my credit card be charged?
Your credit card will be charged immediately.
