When you make a gift to the Carlson School, every dollar goes towards supporting outstanding students and the critical academic work, research, and innovation you can expect from Carlson School faculty and staff. The impact of your participation as a donor reaches past the classroom too, helping to bolster the Carlson School’s national and international reputation. 

It is clear that the programs that set a Carlson School education apart would not be possible without the alumni, friends, and donors who support us. As we look towards the future and the potential it holds, your support of the Carlson School will play a critical role in helping us shape a future we can continue to be proud of, together. 

We need you to challenge us to raise the Carlson School to new heights. To transform the lives of our current and future students. To rise to the occasion as leaders. To promote racial justice and equity. We need you as an investor and partner more than ever before.

Join us in shaping our vision for the future supporting the priorities of the Carlson School today.
