2013 Annual Report

Dear Friends,
As people who care about higher education in Montana, we admire the adventurous pioneers who founded our state university. They believed education would make the state stronger. Today, University of Montana alumni and faculty not only strengthen the state—we share wisdom and leadership around the world. We are transforming lives through knowledge.

The generosity of alumni and friends over the past 120 years makes UM what it is today. Students learn in a dynamic environment from faculty who care deeply about student success. Scholarships help them focus on their studies. Donations through the University of Montana Foundation totaled $17.5 million from July 1, 2012 to June 30, 2013.
