You Make the Difference
Like other nonprofit organizations, the University of Minnesota Press depends on the generosity of people like you to enable us to carry out our mission. More than 95% of our operating funds are generated through sales and from the financial support of our generous donors. And here’s a fact that might surprise you: we receive less than 5% of our funding from the University of Minnesota.
