University of Missouri Office of Advancement officials have announced that the first Mizzou Giving Day raised a total of more than $8.2 million through 3,590 gifts. Mizzou Giving Day, which was celebrated during the 24-hour period from 12 p.m. Wednesday, March 15, to 12 p.m. Thursday, March 16, was the university’s first daylong campaign to raise support from the MU community.
Through the generous donations of Colorado alumni, the Rocky Mountain Tigers raised $1725 for our scholarship endowment. We have now raised more than $39,000 toward our three-year goal of $50,000.
Mizzou Giving Day is a part of the Mizzou: Our Time to Lead campaign. With an overall fundraising goal of $1.3 billion, the comprehensive campaign will secure the University of Missouri’s status among the nation’s elite public universities by focusing on three priorities:
• Endowment Building MU’s endowment will allow the university to strengthen the ability to attract and retain stellar students and faculty.
• Signature centers and institutes These centers and institutes will be the engine of research growth that will enhance MU’s AAU status and add to the university’s distinctiveness.
• Campus renaissance Spurred by new and renovated facilities, Mizzou will take global leadership in education and research, which will help attract and retain students and faculty.
