The Annual Fund, formerly known as the Chaplain’s Fund, provides a critical source of financial support for the most urgent needs of Sheil’s Campus Ministry. Your gift will have an immediate impact on students in the areas of: Liturgy and Sacraments, Social Justice and Service opportunities, Retreats and Student Faith Formation,  Professional Staff Development, and more. To contribute or learn more, please contact Teresa Corcoran, Director of Operations at t-corcoran@u.northwestern.edu or (847) 328-4648.

Gift Credit Through Northwestern University

Alumni, parents, and friends wishing to donate to Sheil may choose to route their gift through Northwestern University’s Development Office. This may make the donation eligible for corporate matching and may give the donor membership in one of Northwestern’s giving clubs. Gifts given through the university will be restricted to student and educational programming. If you would like to make a restricted gift to Sheil’s facilities, buildings or grounds, please make your donation directly to Sheil. For those interested in donating to Sheil via Northwestern, checks, money orders, or transfers of stock can be sent to Northwestern’s Development Office at the address below: The Sheil Catholic Center account, Northwestern University Gift and Record Services, 1201 Davis Street,  Evanston, IL,  60208-4410. Please be aware that there is usually a one-month delay between the university receiving a gift and Sheil being notified. In order to ensure timely acknowledgement from Sheil, please contact Teresa Corcoran, Director of Operations, at the time you make your gift to Northwestern at t-corcoran@u.northwestern.edu or (847) 328-4648.

Matched Giving

Some companies match gifts that their employees make to charitable organizations. If your employer offers this benefit, please make your check payable to Northwestern University.

Planned Giving/Legacy Giving

If you would like to make a legacy gift to Sheil as part of your will, trust, or other financial vehicle, your gift will have a lasting impact on future generations of Catholic students.
