The Lawrence Breen Matching Gift Fund was designated for the purpose of encouraging gifts by offering a match. Breen grew up in Argyle, Minnesota, and graduated from the Northwest School of Agriculture in 1945. It is through his generosity and in his memory that gifts given on Give to the Max Day to the Crookston campus will have the opportunity to be matched. Sadly, Breen passed away in September 2015.
