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


Dear Minnesota State Mankato Parent/Guardian,         

Roche FamilyWe are proud to say that our daughters, Cristina and Amanda, currently attend Minnesota State Mankato. It has been a pleasure to support each of our six children as they work through the challenges of going to college and to celebrate their achievements at the University along the way as well.

Our older children have used the real-world experiences they received at Minnesota State Mankato to start a successful graphic design business and become a drug and alcohol counselor. We look forward to seeing Cristina and Amanda become teachers; Cristina plans to teach middle school mathematics, and Amanda would like to be an elementary teacher. We are asking you to join us in supporting Minnesota State Mankato’s 24th Annual Parents Drive.

We urge you to answer the phone when a student calls from the University’s Annual Fund, and to participate in the Parents Drive at any level. You can choose to give to the Memorial Library—Friends of the Library Program, Student Affairs Division—New Student and Family Programs, or any other area you feel strongly about.

Thank you for your thoughtful consideration, and for your support of the 24th Annual Parents Drive.


Richard and Cathy Roche
2015 Parents Drive Chairpersons

P.S. Family Weekend will be September 18-20, 2015. Visit for details.

A gift to the Parents Drive improves campus life and increases the quality of an education at Minnesota State. You may choose to support any area on campus. Tuition covers only a fraction of each student's education. Gifts to the Parents Drive benefit students by attracting the finest faculty and students, while providing advanced programs that contribute to an education of excellence.
