Housed within Missouri State University Advancement Offices, Foundation Relations (FR) focuses on securing philanthropic funding through building relationships with private foundations, corporate foundations, and other businesses to support Missouri State University's mission.

Corporate and private foundations provide generous support for a variety of projects and programs for students, faculty and the Missouri State community. These initiatives range from research and scholastic endeavors to scholarships, programs, capital gifts and community outreach.

FR staff also work strategically with local, regional and national partners to initiate mutually beneficial collaborations and serve as champions for the innovative work happening at Missouri State University. Our team develops strategies for long-term stewardship to keep foundation partners connected with MSU.


Missouri State University offers a wide range of opportunities for your organization to meet its philanthropic and personnel needs, and enhance the success of our students.
