Make a gift to the Department of American Indian Studies online through the University of Minnesota Foundation.
Gifts from alumni and friends fill a critical funding niche in helping the University achieve the level of quality expected of the state’s premier research university. Donors may designate gifts, of any size, to the campus, department or program they wish to support. American Indian Studies could use your support to meet needs that are critical to its future success. Your gift can make an immediate impact on our ability to establish student scholarships, to develop a pool of funds to assist students with on-campus housing, for support of cultural programming and our speakers series.
Many students who have the desire and ability to attend the University face financial barriers. Scholarships gifts open the doors of opportunity and are proven to help students graduate on time. Please visit this link and consider making a one-time gift or continuing donation to support American Indian Studies students.
Many alumni and friends of CLA choose to support students by including the university in their estate plans. These deferred, or “planned,” gifts include bequests by will, IRA or retirement plan, gift annuity, trust arrangement, insurance policy and other means, and they can be directed toward a variety of scholarships, programs and departments.
In addition to raising funds from individual alumni and friends, the Department of American Indian Studies works to secure financial support for the University from corporations and foundations. These range from sole proprietorships to Fortune 500 companies, and from small family foundations to some of the largest national foundations. Many focus their charitable giving on providing scholarship aid, which is the university’s greatest need.
