For more than 40 years, the Humphrey School of Public Affairs has equipped students and policy leaders with the tools to give back to their communities. Now, you can help us continue that work by supporting us on Give to the Max Day this Thursday, November 18—Minnesota’s statewide day of giving.
And best of all, your gift can go even further this year with dollar-for-dollar matching gifts from generous alumni donors. Please consider supporting one of these programs.
Contribute to the Humphrey Alumni Scholarship
The Humphrey Alumni Scholarship is an opportunity for alumni and friends of the School to support student scholarships. Since 2005, this fund has allowed dozens of Humphrey School students to launch careers of leadership and service in local and state government, nonprofits, and international organizations. Your gift to the Humphrey Alumni Scholarship will support students with a commitment to making lasting impact.
Contribute to the Policy Fellows Program
The Policy Fellows program is a uniquely empowering public affairs leadership experience for community members who want to make a difference. The program brings together Minnesotans from different professional sectors and from across the political spectrum to build leadership skills, broaden perspectives, and undertake important projects that benefit the wider community.
Your gift to the Policy Fellows Program for Give to the Max Day will be matched dollar-for-dollar up to $3,500, thanks to a match provided by our generous alumni leadership circle.
Contribute to the Center on Women, Gender, and Public Policy
The Center on Women, Gender, and Public Policy works to illuminate gender-based disparities through research, teaching, and public engagement. Your gift to the Julia Henderson Fund will help create a bridge from the classroom to a career in public affairs by supporting activities like summer internships that advance gender equity.
Contribute to the Dean's Strategic Initiative Fund
The dean's fund supports the strategic initiatives of the School. In 2021, we used this fund for paid student internships in communities and organizations across Minnesota, and brought a wide range of expert speakers to the classroom. A gift to this fund is a great way to welcome our new dean, Nisha Botchwey, to the Humphrey School in just a few weeks.
Thanks for helping us grow. We appreciate all that you can do for our future!
