All charitable gifts to Northwestern University, including outright gifts, bequests and trusts, corporate matching gifts, and gift pledges, are processed through Development Gift and Record Services (GRS). A gift should never be deposited directly by a department.
For gifts greater than $500 received from a Northwestern faculty or staff member, a statement by the donor that the gift is not being used for personal benefit is required.
