“Giving is not just about making a donation, it’s about making a difference” – Kathy Calvin


The food pantry is feeding hundreds of families during the Coronavirus crisis, but we need your help! Donate to our Go-Fund-Me Page today. With the help of our generous partners, your contribution will have double the impact as all donations up to $37,500 will be matched. Or purchase supplies directly for our families using our Amazon Wish List.

Volunteer With Us

We are always looking for new volunteers! There are many ways to give your time to support Northwestern Settlement, both in person and at home. Due to Covid-19, we are asking that all food pantry volunteers be between the ages of 18-55 and able to lift 30lbs. To get more information about volunteering or be added to our system of volunteers, please email your interest to info@nush.org.

Giving Options

There are several impactful ways you can make a difference for our scholars and the Settlement community. These include but are not limited to online, by mail, recurring gifts, matching gifts, in-kind donations, investment donations, planned giving and wish-lists.


Have gently used clothing, furniture, or other items? The Settlement also accepts a wide range of gifts for our programs. Contact us with any questions or to arrange a donation!

It is easy to make a tax-deductible gift through appreciated stocks, bonds, or mutual fund shares. Your tax deduction will be based on the full market value of the securities at the time of transfer, and the gift will avoid capital gains taxes.
