Why give?

Invest in tomorrow’s engineers

Your gifts – any size and any kind – make a difference to young people considering engineering as a field.

Help us build the future of Minnesota’s STEM sector

Recurring gifts (smaller amounts every month) make a bigger impact over time. Looking to leave an even greater legacy? Consider creating a scholarship or making a planned gift.

Support student leadership

MPEF scholars model civic and academic leadership. Your gift supports their continued development. Learn more about how our scholars are already having an impact.

Where your gift goes

A gift may be designated to a particular program or intiative, disbursed yearly to scholarships, or invested in the endowment to grow in perpetuity.

Unrestricted gifts: a strong investment

If your gift is unrestricted, MPEF will direct the gift to the endowment. Since the principal of the Foundation is not spent, the income from your gift will continue to support MPEF in perpetuity. Gifts are used to help MPEF fulfill its mission. Every gift–of any size–is an investment in the long-term future of engineering education.

Designated gifts: a personalized option

You may elect to direct a gift to a specific program or initiative. You may make a gift in memory of a loved one, direct a gift to a Designated Scholarship Fund, or create a scholarship. The designation of the gift should be in writing at the time the gift is established, or in your will.

Your gift’s long-term impact

Any gift can make a large impact over time, because it will grow. In addition, some types of planned gifts can be structured to actually provide income during your lifetime, and a gift to Minnesota Professional Engineers Foundation (MPEF) when you are gone.


We recognize our donors through MPEF publications and events. MPEF respects a donor’s desire for confidentiality and anonymity. Gift amounts are never made public. And, if you indicate so in writing, MPEF will not include your name on any roster of donors.

Every gift advances the engineering profession. Thank you!
