Welcome!

It’s great to see you!  UND Gives is UND’s inaugural giving day and we are excited to bring you many opportunities to support our outstanding students!  We hope you will join other alumni and friends in supporting the area of your choice at UND. 

Your support DOES make a difference.  Why does it make a difference?  How does it make a difference? 

Scholarships: 

  • Some students need your support to stay in school.  Your gift ensures these students have the opportunity become Leaders in Action for the state, nation and world.

Program support: 

  • Your gift provides the more than 225 academic programs with the resources to enhance learning opportunities and broaden the curriculum.

Experiential learning: 

  • Attending conferences, doing field work, presenting research, studying abroad, are just a few of the opportunities you make available to students.  Every experience gives a student an edge when they enter the job market.

Please accept our thanks for your continuing support of the University of North Dakota!
