Why Give?

Perhaps it was a professor’s lecture, or maybe it was a moment spent with friends on the Oval or the time you helped the Griz celebrate a national championship. Whatever the reason, donors to the University of Montana have all been touched by what UM has given them.

UM  is a place of extraordinary achievements. It’s a place where people come together, share ideas and create a better future for us all. These achievements require a strong financial foundation, and require the help of passionate donors.

Tuition alone does not cover the cost of a UM education, even when combined with state support. Private dollars from alumni and friends are vital to help provide faculty, staff and students with the resources they need to achieve.

Gifts to UM enhance the student experience, improve academic programs and athletics, and enrich the culture and community of campus and Missoula.

Your gift of any size makes UM stronger and more vibrant.
