We have $10 million to give to deserving students.

Your gift will make it possible.
When you make a new endowment fund gift or pledge of $50,000 or greater, Fast Start 4 Impact will provide four years of funding to deserving students. How it works

Typically, an endowment fund starts small and grows over four years. Fast Start 4 Impact changes that. Fast Start awards students right away, in an amount that is roughly equivalent to the payout of a fully established fund. After four years, your new endowment fund takes over. Even better, it continues to help students far into the future. The benefits of this unique opportunity are many.

Students get more financial help, faster.

Your gift creates a permanent legacy.
This is a unique opportunity, specifically created by the University of Minnesota Foundation to increase the power of your endowment giving.
For more information, please contact one of the staff members.

Many have already taken advantage of the unique Fast Start 4 Impact program and 13 students have received scholarship funding totaling $37,500.
