Giving Recognition

Page address:

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.
