An endowment gift to the University of Missouri today provides a brighter picture for our future. When you make a donation to our endowment, you give a gift with both immediate and long-term benefits.

Here's how it works: Endowment donations are invested. Annually a portion of each fund is spent according to Curator-approved policies and agreements with endowment donors, to address immediate needs at the University of Missouri. The remaining funds are reinvested to ensure indefinite support.

Check Out This Potential Scenario

Couple Smiling Longtime supporters Susan and Charlie have two goals: First, they want to make sure Mizzou continues to receive support after they're gone. Second, they want to memorialize Charlie's parents, Mr. and Mrs. Jones. Susan and Charlie made a $25,000 donation to MU, which we invested, and each year, a portion from the invested gift will be used to support MU's mission in honor of the Joneses. Plus, Susan and Charlie get a federal income tax charitable deduction on their taxes in the year their gift funded their endowment.
