GiveBack 2021 – Making a difference together

The Minneapolis College Foundation has been a pillar in our community for more than 45 years, priding itself on offering financial assistance and educational support to students in need who attend Minneapolis College. The work is accomplished thanks to the remarkable generosity of our individual, community and business partners who enable us to help make dreams come true for hundreds of our students each year.

“The generosity of our donors creates a more vibrant and equitable community one scholarship recipient and one degree at a time,” said Beverly Wadsworth, director of Institutional Advancement and the Minneapolis College Foundation. “As 2021 comes to a close we invite you, our community, to support our students during GiveBack 2021.”

GiveBack 2021 offers an array of ways to support students attending Minneapolis College including:

  • Make a year-end gift online at minneapolis.edu/give
  • Drop off in-kind gifts at the Student Support Center, Technical Building T.2327
    • Winter weather clothing and gear for adults and children by Oct. 25
    • Thanksgiving and other holiday meal items
    • Blankets
    • Infant diapers and wipes
  • Participate in Give to the Max Day on Nov. 18

When you give to the Minneapolis College Foundation, you are making a difference in the lives of our students and supporting our long-standing culture of excellence and success. Your gift, in whatever amount feels right for you, will inspire others and go directly to students in need. The more people who give, the greater the collective impact will be.

“This year, nearly 300 students have already benefited from the generosity of our donors,” said Beverly Wadsworth. “Still, we have fall scholarship applications we were unable to fund. Your donation to the Minneapolis College Scholarship Fund will help us bridge this gap. Empowering our students to complete their degrees is a benefit, not only to them, but also to the communities where we all live, learn, work and play.”

  • Students who receive scholarships are 98% more likely to persist and graduate than students who do not receive a scholarship.
  • 100% of your scholarship donation goes directly to offset academic expenses of students in need who attend Minneapolis College.
  • 71% of Minneapolis College students come from under-represented groups, 57% are students of color and 45% experience income challenges that threaten their higher education dream.
  • Scholarships allow students to focus on their studies more and complete their program in a shorter amount of time, thereby increasing the likelihood of creating a better life for themselves and their families.
