First-ever MSU Giving Day slated for April 11

MINOT, N.D. – The Minot State University Development Foundation announces its first MSU Giving Day April 11.

MSU Giving Day is a 24-hour, online day of giving back to the university. The goal is simple: to inspire people everywhere to come together, demonstrate pride for Minot State by making a gift of any size while providing essential resources for generations of MSU students.

“I’m proud to announce our first-ever Giving Day,” said MSU Development Foundation Executive Director Rick Hedberg. “This is an excellent opportunity for individuals to give to Minot State, to the program or department of their choice, in any dollar amount, making an impact on student lives. We are excited to offer Giving Day and to offer matching funds to help double the impact of each gift.”

$50,000 in matching funds to increase the impact of each donation. Matching funds are earmarked into two categories; $25,000 designated for department projects and $25,000 for gifts made to endowments. Gifts under $1,000 will be matched.

MSU Giving Day will start at midnight, April 11, and run until 11:59 p.m. (CDT). Gifts can be made to support the university’s greatest priorities and opportunities, including scholarships, or can be made in support of a specific college or program. Log on to https://give.minotstateu.edu/ to make a gift.

The MSU Development Foundation is encouraging both participation and engagement from donors leading up to and during the MSU Giving Day. Special MSU Giving Day banners and backgrounds have been made for Facebook and Instagram and are available for download at http://www.minotstateu.edu/alumni/pages/msu-giving-day-files.shtml. The hashtag #MSUGivingDay is also encouraged.

Each gift is tax deductible and official gift receipts for tax purposes will be mailed.
