The Missouri State University Alumni Association is the organization through which MSU students continue their connection with MSU when they leave the University. The Alumni Association is a non-dues paying organization, and all alumni are viewed as members.
Many alumni choose to support their alma mater by making gifts to the funds of their choice at the Missouri State University Foundation. Alumni who make a qualifying* annual gift of $25 or more to the Missouri State University Foundation will receive an Active Alumni Member card, which entitles them to benefits.
Alumni participation is important, and every gift helps make Missouri State stronger. Thank you for considering an investment in the future of MSU.
