Donors gave $22.6 million in charitable gifts and pledges during the fiscal year that ended June 30, making this the second-largest fundraising year in university history.
This is a 53 percent increase over the past fiscal year and a 112 percent increase compared to two years ago. The university’s largest fundraising fiscal year to date was 2007, when charitable gifts totaled more than $25.4 million.
“We are deeply grateful to our donors for their generous, steadfast and growing support,” says Vice Chancellor for University Advancement Joan Nesbitt. “Every gift is a vote of confidence in Missouri S&T and our students. We are proud to earn that trust and are committed to delivering on it.”
Fundraising highlights for the 2018 fiscal year include the largest gift in university history as well as gifts that completed two building projects — the Clayco Advanced Construction and Materials Latoratory and an addition to the Kummer Student Design Center.
