Giving Day set for April 12

MINOT, N.D. – The Minot State University Development Foundation is proud to announce the University’s fifth Giving Day is set for Wednesday, April 12.

Minot State Giving Day is a 24-hour, online event where alumni, friends, students, faculty, and staff can empower generations by making a gift of any size to areas that matter most to each donor. The Foundation will match 50% on all gifts up to $1,000 and, in addition, various challenges are available throughout the day allowing you to increase the impact.

“As we celebrate the fifth Giving Day during the public phase of the EMPOWER Capital Campaign, we continue to build upon the momentum this impactful campaign has created,” said Minot State Development Foundation Executive Director Rick Hedberg. “Last year was a record-setting day, and we look forward to the incredible opportunities our students can experience because of the generosity of the MSU community.”

All 65 Giving Day projects support the EMPOWER campaign including MSU’s priority giving projects — EMPOWER Grants, General Student Scholarship Fund, Student Emergency Fund, Hometown Pride Scholarship, and the MSU Vision Fund.

Giving Day 2023 will start at midnight and run until 11:59 p.m. (CDT). Gifts can be made prior to the event, however, as the Giving Day website is live and accepting donations. Minot State and Subway of Minot are partnering for a special Giving Day lunch of a sandwich, chips, and a water, beginning at 11:45 a.m. in the Old Main Loop.

The MSU Development Foundation is encouraging both participation and engagement from alumni, friends, and donors leading up to and during MSU Giving Day. Special MSU Giving Day profile photos and social media banners have been made for Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram and are available for DOWNLOAD. The hashtag #MSUGivingDay is also encouraged for social media posts.
