Charitable IRA Rollover

Major Gifts

Winona State University is fortunate to have a large number of individuals, foundations, and organizations choosing to invest significant charitable dollars in the University and its students. Major gifts often reflect the special interest of the donor while meeting the needs of the University.  Some individuals will make a gift to assist the University in a capital project such as remodeling or renovation, new construction, equipment purchases, or campus beautification. Still others may make a gift to support a specific one-time project or initiative such as a faculty/student research project, a guest lecturer, or travel program. All in all, when a donor expresses an interest in making a major gift, the University works diligently to meet the donor's desire to help the University in the most meaningful way possible.   If you are interested in learning more about the opportunities that exist to make a gift, please contact Mary Rohrer, Director of Major Gifts at 1-800-342-5978 ext. 2602 or
