In Fiscal Year 2018 the St. Cloud State University Foundation raised $5.7 Million, an increase in total giving of 39 percent over the previous year.
Fiscal Year 2018 also saw the total number of donors to the Foundation increase by 3 percent to 4,031. To every donor that helped us achieve such success on behalf of our students, faculty and staff, I say thank you.
Philanthropy continues to play an increasingly larger role in providing the financial resources to help the University deliver academic excellence and empower its ability to engage students, our campus and the communities we serve.
As St. Cloud State enters its sesquicentennial year celebrating 150 years of service to the people of Minnesota, it is clear that a growing culture of philanthropy will be necessary to ensure that the next 150 years are as impactful as the previous 150. Philanthropy is evident throughout SCSU’s campus.
It’s in an athletic triumph. It’s in the hope that a scholarship offers. It’s in technology that brings applied research to life. We thank you for making St. Cloud State University your philanthropic priority! Our graduates help make our communities stronger. Our economy more vibrant. And your philanthropy helps make that happen.
