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 already make an impact.

Where your gift goes

A gift may be designated to a particular program or initiative, disbursed yearly to scholarships, or even invested in the endowment to grow for generations.

Unrestricted gifts: a strong investment

MPEF directs your unrestricted gift toward our endowment. Since the principal of the Foundation is not spent, the income from your gift will continue to support MPEF in perpetuity.

MPEF puts gifts to work to fulfill our 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. Include the designation of the gift in writing at the time you establish the gift, or in your will.

Here are more designation options:

  • Make a gift in memory of a loved one
  • Direct a gift to a Designated Scholarship Fund
  • Create a scholarship

Your gift’s long-term impact

Any gift can make a large impact over time, because it will grow. More than that, some planned gifts can  actually provide income during your lifetime, and a gift to MPEF when you are gone.

Gift acceptance policy

MPEF solicits and accepts gifts for purposes that will help the organization further and fulfill its mission of financially supporting K-12 STEM programs and higher education scholarships for students pursuing engineering careers. We have outlined the policies and guidelines that govern acceptance of gifts made to MPEF for the benefit of any of its operations, programs or services.

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!
