Leadership Annual Giving Donors

Lion Leaders


All Lion Leaders have generously given to Missouri Southern at the “Leadership Level” (donations of $1,000 or more in fiscal year 2023). The annual gifts at this level make a tremendous difference by supporting scholarships, expanding programs and services, enriching student life, creating career opportunities, connecting alumni, and much more.

We appreciate your support of Missouri Southern.
