Financial contributions to the University are managed by the UMD Development Office. Generous gifts to the University of Minnesota Duluth from alumni, friends, corporations and foundations provide the resources necessary for awarding scholarships and fellowships to students, recruiting and retaining outstanding faculty and staff, improving and equipping learning and research facilities, and advancing the University's reputation for excellence. The University of Minnesota Duluth accepts gifts in a variety of forms so that prospective donors may choose the types of gifts that best match their wishes and the needs of the University.
The "Buy a Seat" campaign is one unique way to specifically support the School of Fine Arts. With a gift of $600, payable over three years or less, donors can use this opportunity to honor a teacher, remember a friend, create a memorial or commemorate a birthday or anniversary. A beautiful plaque is displayed in either the Weber Music Hall or Marshall Performing Arts Center to represent each endowment, and your gift will help to continue important programs in the School of Fine Arts.
Over the years, many individuals have given sculptures, paintings, period clothing/fabric, building materials, and other types of personal property to UMD. Our facilities and programs would certainly not have the quality collections they do if it were not for the generosity of our many donors.
A gift of this nature can involve various regulations, and our Director of Development (Rob Hofmann, 218-726-7434 or firstname.lastname@example.org) can assist you if you have specific questions or wish to inquire whether your donation will be usable.
