Giving Recognition

Give every year. Make a difference every day - now more than ever!

Minnesota State Mankato Foundation appreciates every donor and every gift. Contributions at all levels make it possible for the Foundation to support colleges, programs, research, scholarships, cultural activities and economic growth.

Through our giving societies, donors can give at specific levels that allow the University to show formal, public gratitude. Currently, more than 10,000 alumni and friends belong to one or more of the societies.

If you work for a matching gift company, you can double, triple or even quadruple your gift.
