The Bears Fund

The Bears Fund is the annual fundraising program for men’s and women’s intercollegiate athletics at Missouri State.

Membership in The Bears Fund goes beyond tickets and benefits. Member contributions support Missouri State student-athletes as they pursue excellence on the playing field and in the classroom. As a donor, you help them achieve academic and athletic success.

Our mission at The Bears Fund is to support, enhance and impact our 400+ student-athletes across 17 NCAA-1 sports. The Bears Fund assists our teams with programs, recruitment efforts, faculty enhancements and scholarship support for the Bears.

Your membership makes all the difference! You help create today's champions and tomorrow's leaders.
