    Why Should I Give?

    Every dollar you give is a dollar that will Support Our Students in one way or another. Your gift will help MSU Moorhead be a leader in student success. Not only can you support scholarships, but you can also support an educational experience that will have lifelong relevance. 

    Your Gift, Your Choice

    You can designate exactly where you want your gift to go to make an impact. Here is a list of funds.

    • Scholarships can be used to recruit high-caliber students and to provide access to a diverse group of students
    • Discretionary funding is key to enhancing the student experience through applied learning experiences, emerging technologies, and other opportunities
    • Endowed funds can provide a lasting system of support that will continue for years to come

    Payroll Deduction

    By signing up for payroll deduction, MSUM employees can give a little each pay period and have it add up to a significant amount by the end of the year. Anybody can also sign up for quarterly, monthly, or weekly gifts via credit or debit card. Click here to sign up for payroll deduction.

    Setting the Standard

    If we are to ask alumni to give back to MSUM, then it is up to us to set that standard. Imagine the impact it would have to say that 100% of our employees made a gift to the Alumni Foundation. Every gift, every amount counts. It is your PARTICIPATION that is important. All gifts, no matter the amount, are counted towards the participation goal. Please participate and make your gift today!

    Frequently Asked Questions

    Why the change to the Campaign?

    Formerly known as the “Campus Campaign”, the annual faculty, staff, and retiree giving campaign has been a staple of this institution for many years, generating hundreds of thousands of dollars in academic support.
