Wanted: the adventurous and the generous

The University of Minnesota has transformed the lives of generations of Minnesotans, kept the state’s economy strong, fueled creativity, and become a source of answers for people around the world. Few other public universities even come close to the breadth of the U’s expertise.

The extraordinary institutional capacity of the state’s land-grant university, combined with quintessential Minnesota values — resourcefulness, resilience, and a shared belief in the value of opportunity — creates a powerful force for change.

On September 8, the University announced that it is embarking on the largest philanthropic initiative in its history, Driven: The University of Minnesota Campaign, with a $4 billion goal.
