Research is at the heart of the University of Minnesota, and many of the plants displayed on this site could not be grown in Minnesota at all if not for the research efforts of our faculty members. With the rising expenses associated with running teaching and laboratory facilities, researchers increasingly rely on the generosity of donors to support their work. Donor gifts allow research programs to develop new trials, purchase equipment and supplies, hire laboratory staff, and support outreach activities. By giving a gift today, you are helping to change the landscape of the state of Minnesota tomorrow.
Simply use the links below to submit a secure online donation to your research program of choice in a few short steps. On the form you can provide detailed instructions on whether your donation is for a specific use, or you can choose to leave it to the researcher’s discretion to put it toward the greatest need.
