Ways to Give

Gifts of all sizes advance the school, and you fund what matters most you. When you support public health, the output is exponentially greater than the input. Because one breakthrough in public health produces years, decades, and even centuries of change…for the better.

Join the MHA James A. Hamilton Society

The James A. Hamilton Society recognizes alumni and friends of the MHA Program whose cumulative lifetime contributions total $10,000 or more in outright or deferred gifts to any fund that supports the Program in Healthcare Administration.

Benefactors who qualify for membership in the James A. Hamilton Society are automatically enrolled and recognized at the biennial Hamilton Society Dinner.

Endowments ensure that there is an enduring source of funding for the school’s immediate and future needs. Endowments grow over time—the principal is invested and a portion of the fund’s value, currently 4.5 percent, is made available each year to support the purpose determined by the donor.


Double or triple your donation with a matching gift from your employer. Search the University of Minnesota database to see if your employer offers matching gifts.
