Student success has a common meaning at St. Cloud State. It’s about developing the skills, competencies and capacity for learning through our students’ work with faculty in the classroom, and combining that with co-curricular programs that add relevant and applicable knowledge that make St. Cloud State graduates ready to join the workforce and add value to their employers from their very first day on the job.
When you invest in the success of SCSU’s students through your generous support, you help strengthen our region and help launch the careers of thousands of successful graduates. In an era of constrained budgets, philanthropic gifts provide the margin of excellence that make all the difference in the way students experience St. Cloud State.
St. Cloud State's Advancement & Alumni Engagement department works to facilitate these student and faculty experiences through philanthropy, in addition to celebrating our alumni and their accomplishments as stewards of the University. The department works in alumni relations, gift administration, database planning, finance and accounting, and annual and major giving.

The Foundation operates on a July 1 fiscal year, and is governed by an independent Board of Trustees whose operating structure is set forth by its by-laws.
