Driven to make a difference

Discover your purpose while working at the intersection of generosity and gratitude, where you’ll help solve the world’s grand challenges and join the drive to improve life for millions every day. Located on a flagship campus in the heart of an urban business, cultural, and entertainment center, the University of Minnesota Foundation offers employees a chance to make a difference by connecting our generous donors with a range of research, education, and outreach initiatives.

"Every day I connect with passionate people, both donors and colleagues, and it is so energizing. Becoming a front-line fundraiser has always been a goal of mine, and the University of Minnesota Foundation has provided me with the opportunities, resources, and support to pursue and achieve this goal."
