Dear colleagues:

The demands of today call on us to rethink how we look at education, career readiness and the challenges of a healthy society and democracy. To ensure that we can meet the needs of our students, state and world, we are launching a fundraising campaign more ambitious than any in our history. Together, we will build the UNI tomorrow needs.

We know you work every day to ensure our students are successfully meeting the challenges of today. But now we ask for you to personally invest in Our Tomorrow. Will you join us in building a better tomorrow?

To date, the UNI Foundation has raised over $187 million towards the $250 million goal. As we kick off the Faculty and Staff Campaign, your participation is critical to the success of Our Tomorrowyour gift will help us reach our goal and is an important investment in our university’s future. 

You are able to choose any fund you would like to support! All gifts will strengthen UNI’s ability to meet the challenges of tomorrow. This campaign will support all areas of the university — every college, every student.

We cannot build the university of tomorrow without you investing today.
