CSE Annual Giving

Graphic banner that says Annual Adds Up

It’s your time to invest, inspire, and make an impact

Annual giving adds up...

  • to innovation,
  • to hands-on experience,
  • to recruiting the best students,
  • to leadership,
  • to changed lives…

A gift to the CSE Annual Fund has a multiplier effect, as one of our longtime alumni donors, Steve Piazza, has said. It grows each year, and it impacts the University of Minnesota College of Science and Engineering in many ways.

Watch why these alumni continue to give—decades after they started.


Act now.

You might not have a long history of giving like the alumni featured on this webpage. But you can start now.  


A gift in any amount helps. Because many gifts over time make an impact greater than their total sum.

Meet the donors
