Ways to Give
It has become increasingly more expensive to attend college. Although two-year community colleges are much less expensive than four-year colleges the costs can still be insurmountable for many. Supporting the Minneapolis College Foundation means supporting someone's chance to realize their dream of college.
Corporate matching gifts are a great way for Minneapolis College changemakers like you to maximize your personal contribution and increase the impact of your gift. By utilizing a company’s matching gift benefit, you may be able to double or even triple your gift. Plus, if your company matches your gift, you’ll get credit for both. Be the spark that ignites a match at your workplace!
Check with your Human Resources department to learn if your employer will match your gift. Most companies ask you to complete and return a short form or may require our tax identification number, which is 41-1288502.
You can include the Minneapolis College Foundation in your will or trust, including living trusts and charitable remainder trusts. It is recommended that you discuss these options with your attorney and tax advisor. This is a great way for you to leave a lasting legacy with the Foundation.

In order for Minneapolis College students to be successful in a new career, they must be prepared and ready to hit the road with hands-on industry experience with state-of-the-art technology, equipment, tools and labs. We do this with the help from corporations, organizations and businesses that help us prepare their new hires in occupational areas with high employer need.
Thanks to the Leveraged Equipment Fund, a special appropriation from Minnesota’s Legislature, Minneapolis College can “leverage” cash and equipment donations with matching funds from the State. This helps us build long-term industry partnerships that support student learning and college affordability.
Securing matched cash donations and equipment for instructional programs allows our Minneapolis College graduates to gain a competitive edge and the skills needed to excel in high-demand/high-wage careers.
