Make a Gift

At a time when there is a “quiet crisis” in the lack of challenging curriculum and substantial opportunities for many talented students, MathCEP and UMTYMP are still providing Minnesota’s top young math students with not only an excellent education, but a wide-variety of opportunities for expanding their interest in and understanding of mathematics, science and engineering.  As reductions in federal and state funding for education continue, contributions from private individuals and companies become even more essential to our programs.  Please help us to continue offering quality programs for talented students.

The Benefit to You

You can claim charitable deductions up to 50 percent of your adjusted gross income for gifts of cash in the year you make the gift. Excess deductions may be carried over for up to five years.  Charitable gifts are considered made on the "date of delivery" to the University of Minnesota Foundation. This date depends on the type of property contributed and how it is transmitted to the Foundation. If this date is particularly important (e.g., year-end gifts), please contact the Foundation office for handling suggestions.

You also may qualify for a match, which doubles or even triples the impact of your gift.  Visit to see if your company matches gifts to the U.
