Cash gifts of any size will have an immediate impact on Minnesota State Colleges and Universities system and are the easiest and most direct ways in which to provide support. We will also honor your pledge of support, which can be fulfilled in monthly, quarterly, or yearly increments.

Gifts of real estate or tangible personal property can given forthright or can be made through estate planning, which offers specific tax benefits.
