Minot State Giving Day set for April 10

MINOT, N.D. – The Minot State University Development Foundation proudly presents the University’s second Giving Day April 10.

Minot State 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.

“We are excited to announce our second Giving Day,” said Minot State 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. Together we can make a big difference in a short amount of time.”

This year, the Minot State University Development Foundation will match 50 percent of each donation thanks to a pool of $50,000 in matching funds. The Minot State Alumni Association and the Social Science Student Workspace projects are offering 100 percent match on gifts made to those specific projects in addition to the 50 percent match.

Giving Day will start at midnight, April 10, 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 the MSU Giving Day WEBSITE for more information on the event and information on the 50 projects listed. Donors interested in giving to other projects can donate to a special “Have another passion?” project and a designation of their choice can be entered.

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 profile photos and social media banners have been made for Facebook and Instagram and are available for DOWNLOAD.  The hashtag #MSUGivingDay is also encouraged for social media posts.
