The Community Fund Drive, the University of Minnesota’s annual charitable giving campaign, began October 1 and continues through October 31. The fund drive is an easy way for Twin Cities faculty and staff to donate to local nonprofits. Employees donate through payroll deduction or a one-time gift.

2017 CFDThe drive kicks off with a Bake Sale on Thursday, October 12th from 11-1pm in the lobby outside room 225 Veterinary Medical Center. We invite you all to attend and if you are able to donate any baked goods or volunteer your time to assist with the event, your help is greatly appreciated. Any baked goods remaining can be purchased in 301 Vet Science Building after 1:30pm.
