Fall 2023 AEM Donor roster

Thank you donors photo

From the Development Office:

My name is Lexi Thompson, and as the new External Relations liaison to the Department of Aerospace Engineering and Mechanics, I want to thank you, our alumni, faculty, staff, and friends, for your generous contributions to the department. Without your financial support, Aerospace Engineering and Mechanics could not do the essential work of inspiring and educating our students to address the complex challenges of tomorrow.

Gifts of all sizes make a tremendous impact for our exceptional students, faculty, and facilities. You can direct your gift, including planned gift commitments, to any existing departmental fund or establish your own named endowed fund. We are fortunate to have a variety of funds that offer a wide range of giving opportunities, including undergraduate scholarships, graduate fellowships, and support for faculty and student team projects.

Please feel welcome to contact me with questions regarding charitable giving opportunities at (612)-626-0004 or lexi@umn.edu.
