Campus Campaign

Your Time and Talents Help Lion Pride Start From Inside


Every year, our MSSU family comes together to support our students through the Campus Campaign.  It gives our faculty, staff and retirees a chance to support the people, programs and specific funds near and dear to your hearts. 

The Missouri Southern Faculty and Staff campaign helps to fund the programs and initiatives at Missouri Southern that allow our students to flourish in their academic career. When you give in support of these programs, you help lion pride start from inside.

Regardless of the dollar amount, your gift counts you among those who don’t just say they believe in MSSU and its mission – they show it. We invite you to make a difference by supporting campus programs of your choice – whether it be academics or athletics, or contributing to the Green & Gold Fund, your gift matters.

The campaign spans our fiscal year and includes any gifts made from  July 1, 2019 to June 30, 2020 , but if you  make your gift by Dec. 16 , you will be entered into a drawing for a reserved parking spot, an MSSU travel bag, or an MSSU sweatshirt. All donors will receive MSSU socks! 

This university’s strength comes from you and your colleagues – from your daily contributions of time, of talent and of a desire to provide our students with the tools they need to succeed. With that in mind, we ask that you consider making Missouri Southern even stronger by making a gift to the 2019 Faculty and Staff Campaign.

Help us reach our goal of having 200 members of the faculty and staff make a gift to the annual campaign, and help lead the way as we paint the picture for our future. A celebration will take place in the spring to help celebrate our faculty and staff donors.

Thank you for your dedication to Missouri Southern and showing that Lions have pride, Lions lead by example and – most importantly – Lions make a difference.
