The University of Missouri-St. Louis proudly recognizes individual, corporate, foundation and organization donors at every giving level. Private philanthropy is vital to the success and future of UMSL and the university is grateful for each gift it receives.
If a donor wishes to remain anonymous, be assured that UMSL will honor those wishes. However, we enjoy recognizing our generous donors who do not object to this through special literature, recognition events, giving societies and other expressions of our gratitude. Giving societies honor and thank those donors whose loyal commitment and steadfast support have made them a critical part of UMSL's success. It is hoped that recognition of one's gift may well inspire generosity in others.
