The Campaign for the University of North Dakota

Together, we embark on a $500 million fundraising campaign to build a University of North Dakota for the future: a future where people are empowered to make a difference and where the torch of knowledge is passed on to those who will lead the way.

We do. We lead. We are forever UND.

Campaign Priorities

Forever UND is guided by collaborative input from stakeholders and the UND LEADS strategic plan. It is focused on fundraising for four important areas.
