The Missouri Baptist University Annual Fund is a vital source of revenue for the university and helps support every aspect of our students’ educational experience. Maintaining a strong annual fund helps provide support to our many student-life programs, adds resources to our classrooms and helps us continue the upkeep of our campus. Certainly, the faithful gifts of our alumni and friends make a tremendous difference in the life of our university and the future of our students.
Even though 92% of undergraduate students at MBU receive some form of scholarship assistance, the average cost of attendance for most students continues to grow at an alarming rate. It is essential to make up this difference through additional sources of revenue in order to stave off large tuition increases for our students. Without the financial support that comes from our alumni and friends through annual giving, the average student’s tuition bill would increase dramatically, keeping many deserving students from pursuing their education at MBU.
Participation in annual giving by our alumni is a key measure of alumni support that impacts our ability to qualify for grant awards from foundations and corporations. Annual giving also reduces our need to draw from our endowment, assuring that we continue to secure the long-term future of the university.
Please join us in supporting our students by making your gift to Missouri Baptist University’s Annual Fund today.
