Giving Makes Quality Possible

At a time when there is a “quiet crisis” in the lack of challenging curriculum and substantial opportunities for many talented students, MathCEP and UMTYMP are still providing Minnesota’s top young math students with not only an excellent education, but a wide-variety of opportunities for expanding their interest in and understanding of mathematics, science and engineering.  As reductions in federal and state funding for education continue, contributions from private individuals and companies become even more essential to our programs.  Please help us to continue offering quality programs for talented students.

The Benefit to You

  • You can claim charitable deductions up to 50 percent of your adjusted gross income for gifts of cash in the year you make the gift. Excess deductions may be carried over for up to five years.  Charitable gifts are considered made on the "date of delivery" to the University of Minnesota Foundation. This date depends on the type of property contributed and how it is transmitted to the Foundation. If this date is particularly important (e.g., year-end gifts), please contact the Foundation office for handling suggestions.
  • You also may qualify for a match, which doubles, and sometimes even triples the impact of your gift. Visit http://www.matchinggifts.com/umn/ to see if your company matches gifts to the U.

Three Ways to Make a Cash Gift

  1. Make a gift on-line using your credit card at http://www.giving.umn.edu/.  Select "Give Online Today" from the left-hand menu.  Follow the instructions.  Under “Where would you like to designate your gift to be used?” enter "MathCEP Development Fund" in the text box provided (it is not on the pull-down menu).
  2. Send a check or money order payable to the University of Minnesota to the MathCEP Office.
  3. Call the University’s credit card hotline at 612-626-8560 or 800-775-2187 and leave your full name and phone number, the type of credit card, card number, expiration date, amount of your gift, and that you would like the gift designated to the "MathCEP Development Fund."
