UMD Community Giving Campaign

Each year employees demonstrate a remarkable spirit of community by participating in the UMD Community Giving Campaign. Every investment, whatever the amount, touches a life in a very significant way.

Employees can choose to directly support their passions: the environment, the arts, community building, etc—the options are limitless. And every dollar donated is more than a gift; it is an investment in the greater Duluth community.

Here are the organizations we campaign for:
