Missouri State Way and the United Way

In the spirit of our Public Affairs mission and collaborative atmosphere, The United Way Campaign and The Missouri State Way Campaign are a combined effort on the Missouri State campus.  It is important that we combine efforts, pool resources and be more efficient and effective. Participating in both of these campaigns is consistent with the principles of our public affairs mission: ethical leadership, community engagement and cultural competence. Donors to both campaigns do make a difference. Our goals remain the same, participation and support for our campus through the Missouri State Way and for our community through the United Way.

We're leaving the campaigns open another week for a final drive for participation. We will have another prize drawing from participants on Nov. 11th and the winners will be notified by email.

We encourage your participation. 

Two great ways to make a difference!
