Ways to Give


Each year, donors give private contributions, from a variety of sources for many purposes, in support of Missouri State University’s departments and programs, funding scholarships, facilities, faculty development and research.


These donors – which consist of alumni, parents, faculty and staff, and other friends – visibly demonstrate the desire to help improve the quality of education at Missouri State.

Every gift, no matter its size, makes a difference and allows us to continue to provide the quality educational opportunities that characterize the University. So please make your gift today online, and contribute to the success of Missouri State students and programs, today and in the years to come. Thank you for your ongoing support!

Important information about year-end gifts to the Missouri State University Foundation

The Missouri State University Foundation offices will be closed for the holidays from December 20, 2018 through January 2, 2019. Please make your year-end gifts early this year, especially if they involve stock transfers or IRA rollovers. Checks received in the mail by January 4, 2019 that have December postmark dates, will be handled as December 2018 gifts. As always, checks delivered in person in January will be recorded as January 2019 gifts.
