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. Together, we are building 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?
Since kicking off our fundraising last fall more than 1,200 faculty and staff have contributed to the Our Tomorrow campaign. Thank you! Faculty and staff participation is critical to the success of Our Tomorrow. To date, the UNI Foundation has raised over $242 million towards the $250 million goal. Every gift makes a difference and is an important investment in our university’s future.
Please consider making a gift, if you've not already. 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.

Make an impact
To build a community for tomorrow's students, we're asking our colleagues and friends to support the Our Tomorrow campaign by joining the 1876 Society. By committing to a monthly gift of $18.76 or $800 cumulatively through June 30, 2026, you will join a select group of devoted, passionate and loyal faculty and staff. As a token of gratitude, you will receive a custom mug or flower pot created by UNI art student and ceramicist Anna Gilbreath. Limited mugs and pots remain; make your gift now.
