Engineers, business professionals and nurses meet challenges every day. A generous alumnus has issued a new challenge grant to the MSOE community to celebrate our 110th anniversary year. We need your help today to meet this anniversary challenge.

MSOE Regent Chairman Alan Ruud ’69 has pledged to match every gift, new gift and increased gift, including corporate matching gifts—up to $110,000 total—made between now and June 30, 2013. This cumulative contribution of $220,000 to the Annual Fund will enable MSOE to provide enhanced academic and scholarship opportunities for our students.

Go to www.msoe.edu/makeagift to ensure your gift gets matched. More information.
