You propel our community forward. 

Our students come to Metro State with life experience and leave with the confidence to combine their experience and their education to create a more secure future for themselves and their families. 

The Metro Fund 

The Metro Fund is the University's most flexible resource that funds scholarships, pilots new programs, and supports core university services.

When you give to the Metro Fund, you are helping to address Minnesota's education gap by supporting aspiring teachers who bring their lived and learned knowledge to the classroom to create generational change. You help train nurses, nurse practitioners, and dental health professionals.
