Annual Gifts

Annual gifts are a vital source of funding for the University of Montana. For generations, alumni and friends have made a gift each year. Today, 15,000 individuals and businesses contribute to UM annually with $3 million in collective support. Because of this great tradition, UM is able to help more students pursue their dreams. Annual gifts support scholarships, grants for innovative teaching and learning, funding for research and more.

You may choose what area to support with your annual gift. Gifts to the Excellence Fund, UM’s unrestricted annual gift fund, give UM the flexibility to undertake new initiatives and meet pressing needs. Alternatively, you may prefer to designate your contribution to support the school, college or program that matters most to you. Regardless of size or designation, your annual gift makes a significant impact.

The success of annual giving and the spirit of philanthropy that bring supporters of UM together is essential to UM’s continued excellence.  Show your passion for UM. Make an annual gift today.
