Annual gifts are increasingly important not only to maintaining our university, but assuring we maintain an exceptional UND. Annual gifts provide UND the ability to:
- award more scholarships to students who enrich the campus with their diverse and dynamic interests
- provide supplemental funds to its faculty who enliven classroom experiences
- enhance academic and extracurricular programs
- make necessary campus improvements
UND Spirit Today Fund
Unrestricted gifts provide the greatest flexibility for UND to meet today's most immediate needs. Annual gifts are an embedded part of this university's spirit, providing the resources necessary to achieve new levels of distinction. UND's margin of excellence is funded each year with your gifts to the UND Spirit Today Fund.
Annual Excellence Funds
Colleges and units within the University directly benefit from your support to their annual excellence funds. With your support you are upholding the value of your degree and UND experience and instilling in today's students the same UND spirit.
Colleges and units look to these unrestricted gifts to fund their most immediate needs and respond to new opportunities that arise during the year. When you give to college and unit excellence funds, you are supporting the innovative, creative and entrepreneurial spirit that abounds on campus.
Each year we approach alumni and friends to inform them of campus-wide University needs and request annual funding commitments to support priority needs.
