Record Scholarship Support

Dear Friends, Over the past year we all became used to dismal economic news, no matter where we turned our attention. We are delighted to report the UND Foundation is not participating in the trend of “bad news!” It’s true the UND Alumni Association and UND Foundation had a bumpy financial year, probably not unlike many of you. But, despite the rocky road, we ended our fiscal year strong on June 30, and you are the reason why.

our losses were significantly less than those realized by many of our peer universities and we outperformed the S&P as well. Dr. John Fischer, ’65, who funded an endowed professorship in the School of  Medicine & Health Sciences, said he chose UND for his gift, in part, because, “In North Dakota, funds are limited but used wisely.” We’re proud to tell you the UND Foundation is using its resources wisely, keeping our cost of raising a dollar to seven cents, compared to an industry average that creeps into the 20 cent range.

You showed your UND spirit again this year. For the fifth consecutive year, the UND Foundation had a record-breaking number of donors. And, even more impressive, you gave or pledged a total of  $47 million to benefit UND making fiscal year 2009 our best fundraising year in history. It’s a reality that due to market conditions our investments saw a decrease in value. We ended the year down 22 percent. The good news is that thanks to the diligence of our Board of Directors Investment Committee and our fund manager, Commonfund,

Early in the year, the UND Foundation, along with foundations throughout North Dakota, successfully lobbied the state legislature to pass the Uniform Prudent Management Institutional Funds Act (UPMIFA). Without this legislation, the UND Foundation would have legally been unable to pay out funds from endowments that were underwater. This would have had a significantly negative impact on the University. Instead, UND received $11.5 million from gifts you gave through the Foundation. Included was record student

scholarship support of more than $4 million, more than a $1 million increase over what we were able to do last year. You will read about the impact scholarship support has on the pages that follow. The 10 students you’ll meet are among those who received one of more than 1,800 scholarships awarded last year thanks to donors like you. Whether you support student scholarships, faculty, programs or building initiatives, you are having a direct impact every day on each and every student. Because of you and the commitment you show to UND, you are helping this University move from great to exceptional.

Thank you!

Nursing is in my blood.

| Anna Langemo As a nursing student on the brink of  becoming a nurse, I am someone who really cares about other people. It’s the reason I chose this field when I came to UND four years ago. When I think about UND alumna Jane Nelson (class of 1974), who donated her own money to the UND Foundation so I could receive a scholarship, I think of someone else who really cares about other people. Philanthropists like Jane truly make a difference in the lives of students. Without support like this, I would have financial stress on top of the current everyday stress I have that comes with being a nursing student. Though the major is challenging, I know my hard work will pay off when I graduate next spring. You see, nursing is in my blood. It’s something I’ve always wanted to do. My mom is a nurse at MeritCare in Fargo, and another relative, Diane Langemo, was a nursing professor here at UND. This summer I had the opportunity to intern on MeritCare’s psychiatric floor. The experience solidified my desire to become a nurse. The satisfaction I felt from helping others was so fulfilling — something I look forward to experiencing every day.

In all of my endeavors at UND I’ve been impressed. I’ve been impressed with the College of  Nursing, the Greek system, for which I am the currently recruitment chair, and the Center for Student Involvement and Leadership where I work. Above all, I’ve been impressed with the availability of scholarships and the generosity of  UND alumni and friends. I have received a scholarship every year since I’ve been here. The generosity displayed by UND graduates shows me the University of North Dakota left a positive imprint on their lives. I hope one day I can give back and positively impact the lives of students the way I have been impacted.

| Marcus Tibesar

Coming to UND was an easy decision for me. My love for this school began when I was just a kid and my big brother, Tim, was playing football here. My family regularly attended Tim’s games, cheering on the Fighting Sioux. I vividly remember one game, in 1993, when the Sioux stole the Nickel trophy away from the Bison at Memorial Stadium. I was only seven-years-old at the time, but it seems like yesterday! When I was given the opportunity to attend and play football at UND, it seemed too good to be true. This was a tradition I was familiar with and had grown to love. I’d been watching from the sidelines for so long. I couldn’t wait to be a part of the action.

It was an easy decision.

I’m kind of sad this is my last season with the Fighting Sioux. I graduated in December 2008 with a bachelor’s degree in business management and I’m now in the process of earning my MBA. I’m also in my last year of eligibility with the football program. I can’t imagine how fast this season is going to fly by considering how quickly the first four years passed. I have so many great memories on the field. One of my favorites is of our final game of the season last year when we played South Dakota. The game went into overtime and we really wanted to win this one. After all, South Dakota has kind of become our new rivalry. We ended up winning and there was a big hog pile in the middle of the field. I’ll never forget the emotions I felt after that win! If it wasn’t for donors like you, I may not have any of these great memories. For the last two years I’ve received the Marcus J. Bryant Memorial Scholarship, which is funded in memory of a dedicated football fan who died of cancer at just 13-yearsold. Thanks to all of you for your donations to this endowment. Receiving this scholarship has allowed me to do the things I love. Let’s face it, school is expensive and every dollar makes a difference. Without your support I may not have met some of my best friends and mentors or experienced the thrill of running onto the field in a Fighting Sioux jersey. When I finish my MBA, I hope to attend law school. Whether I end up going here or someplace else, UND will always be a place I consider home. Thanks for making my dreams happen!

UND was drawing me in.

| Taylor Butterfield Initially, when searching for a college, North Dakota was the last place I wanted to go. I’d been told how extremely cold it was and even though I am from Iowa, which isn’t a tropical area by any means, I wasn’t ready for 40-below temperatures. That aside, UND’s John D. Odegard School of Aerospace Sciences was drawing me in. I kept comparing it with other flight schools and they kept losing. So I decided I better come and take a tour. In an attempt to keep me at a college closer to home, my mom insisted we visit UND in February. As it turned out, that particular day was about 40 degrees and sunny. Her plan didn’t work, and to UND I came. Along with a state-of-the-art flight school, I liked the fact that UND would provide me a well-rounded education and I would also be able to obtain a business degree along with an aviation degree. I graduated last May with a Bachelor of Science in business and I’ll earn my aviation degree this December. I figure the way the airline industry is these days it’s good to have a backup if flying doesn’t work out. I sure hope it does though, because I’ve wanted to become a pilot since before I can remember. My mom has photos of me cutting out pictures of airplanes when I was a kid! And, making paper airplanes was one of my favorite hobbies. By the time I got to high school, I began taking flying lessons to obtain my private pilot’s license, which I earned when I was 16-years-old.

After graduation I am hoping to be a corporate pilot or fly unmanned aircraft systems, or UAVs. Either way, I’m relieved I won’t enter the real world with a big debt load. Last year I received the John D. Odegard Aerospace Sciences Scholarship, funded by James Ray, through the UND Foundation. This scholarship meant I didn’t have to work an extra job or worry about student loans. I had the opportunity to meet James Ray and thank him personally for the impact of  his gift. It’s people like him and all of you who make UND a better place.

| Danielle Refsland As a small-town girl from Perham, Minn., I wanted to experience city life after high school. I was set on the Twin Cities, where I attended the University of Minnesota to seek a career as a retail merchandiser. After a lecture on the ethics of  buying a knock-off handbag, I decided I was at the wrong school with the wrong major. In addition, classes held more than 100 students and the campus size was overwhelming. After one long semester, I packed up and moved to Grand Forks, where I instantly felt a sense of peace that I had finally found my home. I was relieved and excited to begin this chapter of my life.

I plan to start my own business.

Here at UND, I enrolled in the College of  Business and Public Administration, where I am currently in my junior year pursuing entrepreneurship with minors in economics and psychology. My dream is to one day start my own business. As to what that business will be, I am keeping my options open at this point. But, I can tell you that thanks to donors like you, I won’t have the burden of significant debt when I graduate and get ready to start that business. When I was in high school I didn’t realize so many scholarships were available to college students. I figured the scholarships I received in high school would carry me through my freshman year and that would be the end of  “free money,” as I say. I was fortunately mistaken. UND has had great scholarship opportunities and I have received one every semester since I came here. Last year I received the Lanterman Foundation Scholarship. Since I receive this free money, I must admit I work even harder. It means someone who doesn’t even know me is investing in my future. I definitely don’t want to disappoint the entrusting individual.

Each year at winter commencement, the keynote speaker is often an alum who has given back in support of   UND. I have already considered how I will eventually give back, and hopefully I will be asked to give the commencement address someday. To all of the donors: thank you for your generosity and inspiration. I, too, hope to impact the lives of  UND students just as you have so kindly done for me.

| Nate Murray After receiving my undergraduate degree in education from UND, I came back to work on a master’s in American history. I just have to say I love UND! Coming here was a no-brainer. I may have grown up in Minnesota, but this college and town are in my blood. My dad, Jerry, is originally from Grand Forks and both he, my brother and my grandfather attended UND. I am proud I can follow in their footsteps. To me, Grand Forks is like a second home. During my senior year as an undergrad, I received the Matilda Nelson Erickson Memorial Scholarship. This means a great deal to me. When I found out I was the only one in the College of Education & Human Development to get this scholarship I was shocked. Of all the wonderful people I see in the halls every day, someone thought enough of me to give me this scholarship. That is such a great feeling! Not only do I attend UND, but my dream is to one day get my Ph.D. and become a college professor here. I think my passion for teaching can be traced to my mother, who is a middle school teacher in Minnesota. Being in the College of Education & Human Development is amazing because you know everyone enrolled is here because they want to help others. When we graduate, we know the pay isn’t going to be great, but I am surrounded by people with big hearts. The biggest reward is knowing you are molding young people who are the future leaders of this country. To Naomi Schindele, Matilda’s daughter who set up this scholarship, and to all the people who donated to it, I say thank you. Thank you for taking an interest in the lives of students. Thank you for believing we can make a difference.

My passion is teaching.

I hope to design rockets.

| Crystal Kelly

on obtaining my private pilot’s license. Today, I have about 250 hours logged in the air.

I like to think of applying for scholarships as a part-time job. Each week, I carve out about two hours of my time to work on applications. The payback is good, usually anywhere from $500 to $2,000. One of the scholarships I received last year was the Dr. Donald P. Naismith UND Society of  Women Engineers Scholarship. I had the opportunity to meet Dr. Naismith (classes of 1953 & 1959) at the Society of  Women Engineers (SWE) banquet and thank him personally for his generosity. It’s such a meaningful experience to meet a donor first-hand. I hope someday I’m able to give back in such a positive way!

A native of  Florida, my experience in North Dakota has been wonderful. I enjoy the engineering program, flying and I’m also involved with the Dakota Venture Group, a student-run venture capital investment fund.

I realized engineering was the career for me during my senior prom at Walt Disney World in Orlando, Fla. I remember sitting outside looking at a beautiful fountain and in my mind all I could do was calculate the arc of the flow and how fast the water was moving. Fluid flow has always fascinated me and that’s why I decided to obtain a mechanical engineering degree. Someday I hope to design rockets or any aircraft that flies above the troposphere, so I’ve decided to add a concentration in aerospace. While this may sound like a lofty goal, I’m pretty good at making my dreams come true.

I am not sure where the future will take me, but I do know the sky is the limit. I believe my education and experiences at UND put me ahead of the competition, and I’m thankful for alums like Donald Naismith who continue to support college students just trying to pursue their dreams.

As an older-than-average student, I admit it took me awhile to get to UND. From 2001-05, I took some time off from school and bought, ran and sold a comic book store. The store was a success and I was able to make enough money through that business venture to help pay for college. Another dream of mine was to fly. So, when I got to UND I began working

I will graduate next year and must add that my involvement with SWE has been one of the highlights of my college career. It is a wonderful organization that encourages women to pursue engineering and mathrelated degrees. Without SWE I would not have received the Naismith scholarship.

I’m not about to let anyone down.

| Beth Beecroft When I walked into my first biology class at UND, I was stunned. I think there were more students in that class than in my entire hometown of Minnewaukan, N.D.! As a freshman, adjusting to life in the big city of Grand Forks is definitely a challenge, but it is one I am up for. I am already feeling comfortable here, and have found that UND is a perfect fit for me. It is close enough to my family to still have a lot of contact, but far enough away that I can still branch out and try new things. Right now, my main goal is to make it onto the Dean’s list. This, I have heard, is a really hard thing to do. But, I have the support of the whole community of  Minnewaukan behind me and I have a lot of selfdetermination. I know making the grades to get on the Dean’s list is something I can do and I am not about to let anyone down. Although I am heading toward medical school, music is a passion of mine and I strongly believe everyone should have some piece of music in their lives. I am a second soprano with the UND Concert Choir and am proud to say I've never had professional voice lessons. We have quite a few concerts coming up and I am definitely looking forward to those performances.

Being the recipient of  The Jeannette and Herbert Kroll Scholarship means a lot to me. When I got a letter in the mail stating I had received this scholarship, I was so excited I jumped up and down. Not only is it a great honor to be picked, but it allows me to have some down-time, which is really important. Part of this time will be spent giving back to the community. Volunteering is very important and Grand Forks is full of different opportunities. This scholarship also means I will be able to focus more on my studies, rather than finding a weekend job or having to pay back loans after I graduate. Thank you so much for donating and believing small-town students like me can make a difference.

| Mei-Lan Lo My passion is teaching. Even when I was as young as sixyears-old, whenever anyone asked me what I wanted to do when I grew up, I always said, "be a teacher." Now, as a faculty member at the National Taiwan Normal University, pursuing my Ph.D. is essential. I cherish the opportunity to be enrolled in The Graduate School through the Amy Hui-Mei Chen Hung Memorial Scholarship. I have so many friends around me who worry about tuition and stipends. I am thankful I can concentrate on my studies. I spent nine years as a teaching assistant in the department of English at National Taiwan Normal University and then I was promoted to lecturer. I was really a junior teacher within the department when I was awarded the scholarship to study at UND, so it has been great to be able to do this and eventually continue my career in Taiwan. The timing was perfect. In addition to earning my Ph.D., my family has been reunited here. While I was teaching in Taipei, my husband was studying at the University of California, Irvine, and our daughter was living with my parents in Taichung. We are now all together in Grand Forks.

Love all, serve all.

Before I came to North Dakota, Dr. Akey Hung (the scholarship’s donor and UND class of 1973 alumnus) came to Taiwan to tell me what to expect at UND. He lives a frugal life and I was so touched to see he still donates to support others. I hope I can carry on this love to people I know and to those I don’t know. As my spiritual mentor, Sathya Sai Baba, said, “Love all, serve all.”

Pillars of their communities I’ve always liked working with people.

| Andy Gasparini The first time I took a block exam for medical school, my wife told me she was pregnant. Months later, test time again, she went into labor. As you can imagine, an already stressful situation became even more so. My road to medical school has had many curves. I always knew I would reach my professional goals, but I didn’t realize what, specifically, the destination would be. My journey started at Northland College in East Grand Forks, Minn. where I became a registered paramedic. I worked at Altru Hospital for six years, while continuing to get a bachelor’s degree. It was my experiences with Altru Ambulance and MeritCare LifeFlight that steered me in the direction of the UND School of Medicine & Health Sciences. I have always liked working with people and I have always held physicians in such high esteem, one day I started thinking, "I can do that!" Married to my supportive wife, Kim, with a young son, Nicolas, I took the MCAT and began the rough road. On May 9, 2009, I graduated and am now in my residency at Grand Forks Family Medicine Residency. Last year I received the Florette and William L. Schwartz, M.D., Scholarship through the UND Foundation. The scholarship is

12 | 2008-2009 UND Foundation Report

intended for someone interested in pursuing a career in rural medicine. I am so appreciative to the Schwartzes for recognizing a huge need for physicians in rural, underserved areas. I plan to do a fellowship in surgical obstetrics at UND before going to Roseau, Minn., where I've been offered a job. I hope the skills I learn through this experience will help me be a valuable resource in rural Northwest Minnesota. Kim and I, with our children, Nicolas, 7, and Megan, 3, are looking forward to our next journey.

| Lori Conroy I remember the night when I made the decision to apply to the University of  North Dakota School of  Law. At the time, I was working as a news co-anchor at WDAZ-TV in Grand Forks. I felt as if I had hit a ceiling in my television news career. Although I loved the process of investigating and gathering news and reporting it live, I felt I was ready for a new challenge. I had initially planned to attend law school after finishing my undergraduate degree, then decided instead to begin my career in television. But, my interest in the law never diminished. In fact, it was the news that put me in the courtroom that interested me most. Those stories included covering the arrest and prosecution of Alfonso Rodriguez Jr., the man now convicted and sentenced to death for the kidnapping and murder of  UND student Dru Sjodin.

than just a career change.

The decision to apply to and attend the UND School of Law turned out to be more than just a career change. It turned out to be the most challenging, exciting and rewarding experience of my life. In law school I had the opportunity to excel both academically and in co-curricular activities. My favorite memories of law school will include the hours of practice time spent with my Trial Team coaches and teammates. Those long days and hard work led us to win our regional trial competition and earned us a trip to the national

competition where our team competed against three of the top trial teams in the country and won two of our three trials. Trial Team is just one of the many wonderful trial advocacy experiences I had the opportunity to participate in during law school. I also competed in the Carrigan Cup, an intramural moot court competition named after noted UND law alum Jim Carrigan (class of 1953, HON 1997). In addition, I competed in Moot Court, took classes in criminal and trial advocacy, and worked as a student attorney in the clinical education program. My trial advocacy experiences were enriched by the generous support of donors such as Mr. Jack Marcil (classes of 1963 & 1968). I was truly honored to receive the scholarship in Mr. Marcil’s name, and it meant so much to meet him and discuss my future career plans. Although the scholarship money is much appreciated, it is the meaning behind the financial support that I find most beneficial. It is a wonderful feeling to know someone recognizes and appreciates your hard work. As much as I enjoyed my legal education, I am truly excited to have my legal career. Since graduating in 2009, I joined the Vogel Law Firm in Fargo as an associate working in the area of litigation. I plan to return to the law school as often as I can to visit, to help with co-curricular activities and to lend my support. Donors like Mr. Marcil have taught me that the time to give back is now. Mr. Marcil has set a wonderful example for both current and future graduates of  UND law. I hope to set that same example for my son, Luke, who was born this past May.

ot only did UND alumni and friends set a new record for the amount given to benefit UND this year, but for the fifth consecutive year, the UND Foundation saw an increase in the number of donors choosing the University as a benefactor of their charitable giving. With an active alumni base of nearly 80,000, 12 percent are expressing gratitude for the impact UND has had by making a gift. Did you know giving rates make up five percent of an institution’s score in the U.S. News & World Report annual survey on college rankings, which can lead to corporate and foundation grants? Among donors this year, 15 percent made their first gift!

NCPG vs. GAAP Gift Reporting Beginning in fiscal year 2006 the UND Foundation began tracking gifts according to industry recognized standards from the National Committee on Planned Giving (NCPG). The Guidelines for Reporting and Counting Charitable Gifts provide a methodology for showing how all types of gifts contribute to an organization’s fundraising goals. The numbers reported throughout much of this report reflect these NCPG standards.

The UND Foundation is also required to prepare financial statements in accordance with Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP) and follows the pronouncements set forth by FASB for the reporting of certain items. According to GAAP standards, the UND Foundation raised $10.6 million in FY09. NCPG and GAAP view gifts in a slightly different light and therefore have different methodologies for calculations. The greatest difference is the accounting of revocable gifts. Each number serves a different purpose for the UND Foundation. | 15

Financial Highlights O

f the UND Foundation’s total assets, more than 95 percent represent marketable securities. The balance is made up of pledges to give land, mineral rights and other property. As a result of a downturn in the economy during the fiscal year, our net asset holding declined by about 20 percent from 2008. The UND Foundation’s greatest asset is its endowment portfolio, which is managed by Commonfund. Gifts invested into an endowment make an impact now and in the future, ensuring longevity of donor intent. The UND Foundation board of directors’ investment committee oversees these funds and provides guidance into investment strategies to maximize benefit to UND and maintain the strength of endowed funds. Of the $11.5 million directed to the University in the fiscal year, 28 percent came from the four percent payout on endowments, a percentage determined by our investment committee.

New Endowments

In the 2008-09 fiscal year, the following endowments were established, growing the total number held within the UND Foundation to 962. Donors who establish endowments are committed to supporting activities not just for one year, or even one generation, but for perpetuity. By their very nature, endowments require the balancing of current and future needs. Endowments provide the stability necessary for UND to remain the premier liberal arts university in the Northern Plains. An endowment can be established and named with a minimum gift of $25,000 and funded over time or with a deferred gift arrangement. Donors may also choose to designate gifts to existing endowments held within the UND Foundation to grow their base of support. For full endowment listing visit *Indicates a deferred gift arrangement will establish the endowment.
