Can I designate where my contributions should go?

Absolutely! Your contribution can be designated for scholarships, any academic department or college, student organization, Husky athletic team or other officially recognized area of the University with an established fund so you can support what matters most to you. Every gift matters. Make yours today! Click here to view the list of funds [Link opens in a new Window].

Can I designate my gift to more than one area?

The minimum gift amount to any fund is $1. Gifts made on a recurring basis through payroll deduction may designate up to a maximum of 4 funds provided the minimum gift amount is met. If you still have questions contact Josh Lease at the Foundation office.

I can only give a modest amount. How can that possibly make a difference?

Your gift is joined with those of other faculty and staff for even greater impact so all gifts are important no matter their size! Your participation matters most and sends a strong message to alumni and friends: we support SCSU, why shouldn’t you?

Is my gift tax deductible?

Yes! As a 501 (c) (3) organization, 100% of your gift to the St. Cloud State University Foundation is tax deductible to the fullest extent allowed by law.
