Roadmap for the future

The time is right to consider the future of development at the University of Minnesota. With the end of Driven: The University of Minnesota Campaign in sight, we must maintain and grow the momentum generated by the campaign’s success through FY25.    

Through a collaborative process, the University of Minnesota Foundation has created a five-year strategic roadmap for the systemwide development enterprise. The plan is built around four strategic imperatives:                             

PRIVATE INVESTMENT: Transform the future through philanthropy and private investment.

WORKPLACE: Be a destination workplace where talented people feel a sense of belonging and build fulfilling careers.

ENGAGEMENT: Connect current and future donors to causes that inspire them in ways they prefer to engage.

OPERATIONS: Operate and innovate with a drive toward efficiency and excellence.
