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


Dear Minnesota State Mankato Parent/Guardian,         

Smith FamilyWe are proud that our son, Brandon, attends Minnesota State University, Mankato. His younger brother, Luke, plans to join him in the fall. They had the opportunity to listen to their grandfather, Dr. Geoff Nicholson, the “Father of Post-it Notes”, share his innovative thinking on campus last year. We’d like to relay Brandon’s words regarding his college experience:

“Minnesota State Mankato appealed to me because of the great campus design. I form friendships and enjoy learning with students in my Automotive Engineering Technology major. Working at my campus job for the past two years, I have met many people who help me further my education. Also, I have learned valuable skills being both a leader and team player, as President of the Minnesota State Mankato Drag Racing Team.”

We are asking you to support Minnesota State Mankato’s 25th Annual Parents Drive. Please answer the phone when a student calls from the Annual Fund and participate in the Parents Drive. You can choose to give to the Friends of the Library Program, New Student and Family Programs, or any other area.
