How do I make a gift online?
At our giving home page, Giving to Missouri State University.

First, let us know where your gift should go.

  • Click on a college or other area.  You will then be taken to a page that lists departments within that area.
  • Click on a department.  You will see a list of funds within that department.
  • Enter the amount of your gift in the box next to the funds you wish to contribute to.
  • Click the Submit Information button to proceed with this gift or choose View Other Giving Opportunities to continue looking at other funds.

Second, verify your selection.

  • Check to see that your gift designation is correct.  If it isn’t or let’s say, you’ve changed your mind, click Remove to delete a gift or Edit to change the amount. To choose another fund, click Make another Donation.
  • You'll be able to choose to make your gift in memory of or in honor of someone.  If so, you’ll be directed to enter the name.
  • If you would like to designate a gift to more than one fund, choose Make another Donation.  You’ll be directed back to the Giving to Missouri State University page and just repeat the steps above.  Your new gifts will be added to your list.
  • Click on Complete Your Gift when you have finished choosing your gift designations.

Third, in order to process your gift, we will ask you some personal information.

  • Name, email address, affiliation, home and business address, and phone number.

  • We’ll then ask for your credit card information:  card holder’s name, card type, number, and expiration date.  We accept Visa, Master Card, Discover, and American Express.
  • If you choose to pay by check rather than by credit card, choose the Pay by Mail option.  Your submission process is complete at this point.  A form will be generated for you to print and mail along with your check to the Missouri State University Foundation.
