Benefits of Fast Start 4 Impact



Your gift helps deserving students right away.
Your gift triggers four years of Fast Start awards to deserving University of Minnesota Duluth students. There’s no waiting for your gift to grow.



Your investment continues to help students for generations to come.
Your gift funds a permanent endowment for student support. You are making a long-term investment in the University of Minnesota Duluth that provides benefits to students far into the future.


Financially wise

Your gift gets more help to students, faster.
When compared with typical endowment starts, Fast Start 4 Impact significantly increases the power of your gift for students. Investment earnings are reinvested into your new fund for the first four years, allowing the principal to grow. Meanwhile, Fast Start funds your choice of an undergraduate scholarship, a graduate fellowship or a professional school award.

Four years

Your gift can be made over 4 years.
You do need to act fast on this unique program, making your commitment before December 2014, pledging to pay the full amount immediately — or in equal payments over four years. Either way, taking advantage of this unique giving program now helps more students, faster.
