Don't miss the chance to amplify the impact of your endowment gift!
For every $100 you give, an additional $50 will be given!
In 2017, a $250,000 matching challenge was made by a longtime friend of the fair to encourage gifts to the Minnesota State Fair Foundation endowment. From now through 2021, when you make a gift to any Foundation endowment fund, an additional gift will be made to the Foundation's General Endowment!
- Any size endowment contribution made during challenge period
- Contributions designated to a new or existing endowment fund, including the General Endowment.
The Minnesota State Fair is the preeminent institution of its kind in the nation and a treasured resource for the people of Minnesota. A strong endowment will help to ensure its vitality for generations to come.
We invite you to consider creating an endowed Legacy Fund as a lasting legacy of your interest in the Fair or to honor a special person or family. Named endowments can be established to provide general support for the Fair or to support an aspect of the Fair that is of special interest to you. Legacy Funds require a minimum gift of $20,000 and may be created with a current gift payable over as many as five years, a future gift through estate planning, or a combination of a current and planned gift.
You may also make a gift of any amount to the Foundation’s General Endowment (to be used where most needed) or support within one of our program areas: Agriculture, Art, Education, Environment, and History and Heritage.
