Why UND Needs You
When you contribute to the University of North Dakota, you help the changemakers and the doers continue to serve our world.
UND is pioneering discoveries in unmanned flight, harnessing the power of big data and changing the game in energy exploration and environmental sustainability. We’re fighting the nation’s raging opioid epidemic and waging war against deadly cancers and debilitating deep-brain diseases such as Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s.
With the University's strategic plan and Grand Challenges to guide us, we are empowering action and creating a UND for the future.
Supporting your UND family supports a better tomorrow. When you give, you become part of a continuous effort of UND alumni and friends who come together in support of our students. What we can accomplish when we work together for the common goal of enhancing the student experience is truly inspiring.

Our Fundraising Priorities
Like the four pillars supporting the Eternal Flame, these priority areas drive our fundraising efforts.
Help UND students achieve their academic goals by giving to student scholarships. Student scholarships alleviate financial burdens to allow students to stay on track with their studies and continue to reach their academic dreams.
Faculty & Research
One of the highest academic honors given at any university, an endowed faculty position helps UND build a strong base of faculty talent and enriches our academic environment. Help UND recruit and retain the highest-quality faculty and the brightest students by establishing an endowed position.
Colleges & Programs
From the eight colleges that make up our great university to the 17 sports that make up UND Athletics, our programs are what make us special. Each college and center is doing innovative work to prepare our leaders for action.
The world is constantly evolving and so is UND. Be a part of building the next generation’s experience at UND through new building and infrastructure projects.
