UMD Giving Campaign

Each year employees demonstrate a remarkable spirit of community by participating in both the UMD Employee Giving campaign and the Community Giving Campaign. This year we are combing our efforts into one comprehensive UMD Giving Campaign, which will provide an opportunity to support the Duluth community and our own UMD community. Every investment, whatever the amount, touches a life in a very significant way.

Employees can choose to directly support their passions: the environment, the arts, community building, students, research, college priorities, athletics—the options are limitless. And every dollar donated is more than a gift; it is an investment in UMD and the greater Duluth community.

Here are the organizations we campaign for:

Support your UMD Community:

• The UMD Employee Sponsored Scholarship is funded with gifts from current and former UMD employees. All of the money donated to this fund during a fiscal year is used to award scholarships for UMD students during the next academic year. This year we awarded a $1,000 scholarship to a student in each of the five collegiate units.

• Every UMD department and program has gift options – meaning you can support your department or program at UMD or something you are passionate about.

*Use the UMD Employee Giving Pledge Form to show your support for your UMD and our students and programs. These gifts will be processed through the University of Minnesota Foundation.

Support Duluth and the Broader Community:

*Select one of these options and use the UMD Community Pledge Form. These gifts will be processed through university payroll.
