Lakeside Fund

Make an impact

The Lakeside Fund provides scholarship support to students and funding for presidential priorities on campus.

By making a gift to the Lakeside Fund, your support will help sponsor university scholarships and other education opportunities for BSU students. 

Gifts to this area allow Bemidji State University to provide extraordinary opportunities for learning and discovery and to help meet emerging needs and challenges on campus. These unrestricted funds give BSU the flexibility to undertake critical new initiatives. 

Our donors' financial commitments make transformational opportunities a reality at BSU. We invite you to partner with us in preparing our students for the future.
