College Night Endowment Fund

College Night Endowment Fund

To honor this unique tradition and students past and future who participate, the College Night Endowment Fund has been created to provide financial support in perpetuity for this amazing experience. Specifically, earnings from the endowment will be used for expenses and equipment that are not a part of the University budget.  Examples could include replacement of the grand drape in Palmer, technology for the productions, dance flooring for the stage, and other special, unbudgeted College Night related needs.

As we anticipate the second century of College Night and remember fondly its impact on our lives, let us ensure it will offer these same gifts to future UM students. As we look forward to the second Saturday in February, we have set a goal to raise $100,000 for the College Night Endowment. We need YOUR help. So, we are asking that you circle up your side one more time and reach out to your closest College Night friends to help us meet this ambitious goal. Please make your contribution today, and encourage others to do the same.
