M State Foundation and Alumni is proud to serve each distinct community where our campuses are located. Tangible evidence of this exists in the foundations organized for the benefit of our college and through the work of our dedicated boardsof directors and donors who support our fundraising endeavors.
In 2006, with significant help from the Otto Bremer Foundation, we began a two-year process of reviewing the status of our existing foundations and identifying the unique position of a collegewide foundation. At the same time, M State was able to hire advancement staff for each campus. Staff worked with the foundation board to strengthen the foundation.
The campus boards provided representation on a task force that helped to access resources for the unique needs of each campus foundation and set to work on assessing the need and distinct role of the M State Foundation.
Today, M State Foundation and Alumni can participate in campus initiatives and scholarship programs for each campus. Collegewide programs supported by business and industry and scholarships for online students are the primary focus of the M State Foundation and Alumni.
As alumni and friends of education, we ask that you stay in touch with M State Foundation and Alumni, where many great things are happening. We look forward to sharing our story, and we would like to hear from you. If you attended one of our campuses in the last 50-plus years, we ask that you update your information on the form available on the Alumni pages.
By taking a distribution from your IRA this year, you will likely pay more in taxes and may even reach a higher tax bracket. Rolling over part of your IRA's "required minimum distribution" or "RMD" to a charity like ours can help reduce your tax bill while supporting our cause.
If you are 70½ or older and don't need your RMD, you can make a gift of up to $100,000 this year from your IRA to help further our mission. Compare the impact of taking your RMD versus the benefits of making an IRA charitable rollover gift to us.
Here are some ways you can shift tax dollars to charitable dollars and support a cause like ours.
