Minnesota State Employees’ Combined Charities Campaign is here

Posted on October 13, 2017

From Oct. 1 through Oct. 31, join us in a competition with the other Minnesota State Universities to be the most charitable institution. We are competing for the highest percentage of employee participation—even $10 helps! Employees can donate to a charity of their choice through payroll deduction. Set it up once, and your generosity keeps giving all year long! 

This process makes your donation stretch further to help Minnesotans in need. The campaign includes Charitable Federations, groups of charitable organizations that represent charities working on similar issues. This collaboration keeps administrative and fundraising expenses low, making your contribution dollars go as far as possible.

Donate to the cause that matters most to you––environment, education, women’s issues, breaking the cycle of poverty, and much more!  Read the rest of this entry →

Qualifies as nationwide superior chapter

The Minnesota State University Moorhead Financial Management Association (FMA) chapter recently received three prestigious awards from Financial Management Association International.

The MSUM FMA chapter qualified as a superior chapter for its programming and activities last year. The award goes to less than 10 percent of chapters in the country.

Joe Tjosvold, FMA president for 2016-2017, was named one of six nationwide FMA Collegiate Fellows for exemplary leadership and service.

MSUM FMA advisor Tom Hanson was named a Superior Faculty Advisor, an award that goes to only five honorees nationwide.

MSUM was the only chapter in the country to win all three awards this year, and perhaps one of the only to do so in the past 20 years.

Congratulations to all!
