Ways to Give

Ways to Give

Gifts of all sizes advance the school, and you fund what matters most you. When you support pharmacy, the output is exponentially greater than the input. Because one breakthrough in pharmacy produces years, decades, and even centuries of change…for the better.


Make a gift online or mail in a gift form with credit card information or a check.


Planned giving through wills and trusts, and retirement and life insurance plans allows your gift to have immediate and long term effects with focus gifts through existing assets.

Faculty and Staff

Show your commitment and pride in the College of Pharmacy! You can easily sign up to make ongoing gifts through payroll deduction, or fill out and return the paper form.


Set up a sustaining gift through monthly payments via your credit card or bank account.


Endowments ensure that there is an enduring source of funding for the school’s immediate and future needs. Endowments grow over time—the principal is invested and a portion of the fund’s value, currently 4.5 percent, is made available each year to support the purpose determined by the donor. Create an endowment fund by contacting Joe Kolar at 612-625-6305 or kolarj@umn.edu.

Corporate and Foundations

The College of Pharmacy education and research is made stronger through relationships with corporate and foundation partners, many of whom hire our graduates. These mutually-beneficial connections make huge impacts to our school, to industry, and to communities across the globe.
