Give to advance racial justice

All across the University of Minnesota system, important work is underway to dismantle systemic racism, remove barriers to equity, and provide support for Black communities, Indigenous communities, and communities of color.

Your gift to initiatives in the areas of student support, research, and outreach—a few of which are highlighted here—helps advance racial justice and move us closer to a more just and equitable world.

Student support

Your support can help underrepresented students receive a world-class undergraduate, graduate, or professional school education. Financial assistance removes barriers and opens up the future for tomorrow’s leaders.


Academic inquiry plays a key role in understanding systemic racial and social inequities—their causes and how to address them. Your support of University research creates knowledge that advances a more just and equitable world.


Our mission is anchored in creating positive systemic change. Your support helps address inequities in under-resourced areas, ranging from K-12 education to health care.
