To make a donation by mail, write the check out to the NAU
Foundation and indicate the specific fund in the memo section on the check.

The Friday Lunch Clubbe is an organization of ex-NAU Geology
grad students. Our mission is to support current graduate students in the
department. We do this primarily by sponsoring a yearly grant program to
provide financial assistance to current graduate students for their summer
field research and occasionally offering financial assistance for field trips,
and yearly social events.
