Make no small plans. Donate


The nation’s leading institutions rely on prestigious, endowed faculty positions to attract and retain renowned professors and creative scholars. With contributions from donors like you, we aim to expand our opportunity to provide such support. High-caliber faculty move our programs forward, attract exceptional students and contribute to a rich and rewarding campus culture.

Student Success

Ensuring students have the funding and support they need to succeed at UM is a top priority. Scholarships make college more affordable and accessible, and are critical to our ability to recruit students. We aim to grow the number of scholarships across the college. We also aim to grow our advising services, especially for our online students, most of whom are in art and media art. These growing constituency benefits greatly from having a point person on campus.

UMArts Impact Fund

Impact Funds across campus helps ensure UM’s excellence by providing unrestricted support where and when it is needed most. With your gift, the College of Visual and Performing Arts can provide essential opportunities and resources students and faculty need to thrive.

Montana Museum of Art and Culture Impact Fund

MMAC is home to one of the oldest and most prominent fine art collections in the Rocky Mountain Northwest. Its staff maintains more than 11,000 objects, including significant historic and contemporary artworks. Your gifts to the MMAC Impact Fund help us care for and display these treasures, host thoughtful and engaging public programs, and share our collection online and through other outreach.

Nowhere does student achievement shine as bright as in the University of Montana’s College of the Arts and Media. UMArts offers a premier artistic and technical education for undergraduate and graduate students in music, theatre, dance, art, film and new media. With your support for faculty and students, we will cultivate a campus of creative thinkers, innovators and passionate professionals.
