Become an MBU Champion

Learn more about MBU

For many people, leading a successful life involves making a positive difference in the lives of others. Missouri Baptist University benefits greatly from the generous support of alumni who contribute time and talent to the University. Equally as important though, are the financial gifts that build a lasting legacy for current and future generations of Spartans. We call these individuals MBU Champions.

MBU Champions are dedicated alumni who commit to making gifts that will play a vital role in advancing MBU’s strategic objectives and initiatives. These leaders make a significant impact in helping MBU strengthen and launch academic initiatives, build buildings, fund scholarships and undertake other projects that advance university priorities. They also stand as philanthropic landmarks for all alumni and donors, inspiring others to give generously.

MBU Champions give leadership gifts that will support MBU’s 50th Anniversary Campaign. These important leadership gifts will provide the foundation of the Alumni portion of the Campaign and will generally have these attributes:

•They are outright gifts that will help fund Campaign initiatives over a timeline of 5 years, either through an annual, monthly or one-time gift.
•Depending on the donor’s intent, they can be spent on any of the Campaign initiatives (i.e.; Academic and Student Development Complex, increased scholarships and endowments, enhanced student support services, expanded athletic facilities and on-campus housing).
•They may be gifts of cash, publicly traded securities, stock, real estate or other property.
•MBU Champion Leadership gifts can range from $1,000 to $25,000 or more over a period of 5 years.
•They will qualify for a tax deduction.
•They will be an investment in the lives of students, helping develop our leaders for tomorrow.
