Missouri S&T received $14.7 million in charitable gifts and pledges during the fiscal year that ended June 30.

This total for the 2017 fiscal year is a 37 percent increase over the previous fiscal year and a 45 percent increase over the $10.1 million received in the 2013 fiscal year, which serves as a baseline for the university’s strategic goals.

Highlights of the past fiscal year’s fundraising efforts include the largest gift ever received for S&T’s Engineers Without Borders (EWB) program, a $1 million gift for scholarships, and the addition of four new Rolla Rising Scholarships, a priority funding initiative focused on strengthening S&T’s recruiting flexibility.

“These charitable gifts come from donors with an abiding belief in the power of education, a deep commitment to giving back and confidence in the work of Missouri S&T,” says Vice Chancellor for University Advancement Joan Nesbitt. “This is Miner pride and purpose in action, and we are both inspired by and grateful for their financial investments.”
