Gifts of farmland
Donate your farm and leave a lasting legacy.
Farming is a way of life and a family’s valuable legacy. With a well-planned charitable gift of your family farm to the University of Minnesota, you can make a lasting difference for future generations.
In most instances, the University of Minnesota Foundation will sell the property and the proceeds will be used to support the college, campus, or program you choose, in a way that’s most meaningful to you.
Like each farm, each farm gift is unique. The University of Minnesota Foundation collects and reviews information about each property before acceptance. As a first step, contact the foundation’s planned giving team to discuss your proposed gift.
''Agriculture has always provided for my family. Since I can’t take the land with me, I want to do as much good as I can. The University of Minnesota provided me with the opportunity to create a scholarship to support dedicated, caring, and hard-working students.''
