Driven: The Campaign for the School of Dentistry

The University of Minnesota has embarked on a campaign to set a new course for students, the state, and the world. Through Driven: The University of Minnesota Campaign the School of Dentistry seeks $27 million in philanthropic support to advance our commitment to fueling student success in dentistry and improving the oral health of all Minnesotans. We are focused on achieving our key priorities of supporting students, advancing research, and enhancing our digital dentistry capabilities.

With generous support of our alumni and other community partners, we will ensure the powerful impact of the School of Dentistry for generations to come.

The following initiatives have been identified in support of the School’s fundraising goal.

Requesting fundraising support

When exploring the possibility of creating a fundraising campaign in honor, or in memory, of an individual connected to the School of Dentistry, or in support of a division or initiative within the School, please fill out the appropriate form below.

The questions are very specific and need to be fully considered in order to complete the form. Take some time to review the form and do any consultation necessary to thoroughly answer each question prior to submitting the form. You will receive confirmation your request was received and an approximate time frame in which you will hear back from us about the feasibility of your request.

While we are unable to proceed with all requests, we want to help raise money for as many areas within the School as possible so we can further the mission of the School of Dentistry.

If you have any questions, contact Emily Best.
