Choose a passion. Choose a priority.

There are many ways to make a difference at Missouri S&T.


Annual Gifts

Your annual gifts make a difference every day: supporting scholarships, expanding programs and services, enriching student life, creating career opportunities, connecting alumni, advancing research – and much more.

The Annual Fund touches every corner of campus and the life of every student:

  • Helping young scholars with financial need cover the cost of tuition and fees.
  • Providing student organizations with programming dollars.  
  • Enriching student life with peer mentoring, leadership development, athletics – and even midnight breakfasts during finals week.
  • Supporting the internships, field trips and design team competitions that provide “real-world” experience.
  • Strengthening research and technology transfer.
  • Supporting Miner Alumni Association activities in cities across the nation.
  • And that is only the beginning.

For more information on contributing to the Annual Fund, please contact Janice Weatherly, development officer for annual giving, at jkwv3b@mst.edu  or 573-341-4934.



Endowments

Endowed gifts are an investment in today, tomorrow and forever. These gifts that keep on giving provide permanent financial resources for many things: the scholarships that support bright students, the fellowships, professorships and faculty chairs that allow Missouri S&T to continue attracting exceptional scholars, the equipment and maintenance funds essential to caring for and upgrading our campus facilities, and much more. For more information about funding an endowment, please contact a member of the development staff.

Capital Projects

From the legacy of a 143-year-old mining school founded on the cusp of the Industrial Revolution to the innovations of a nationally recognized research university at the frontier of the future, Missouri S&T has been transformed by capital projects. Today more than 8,000 students pursue their hopes and dreams on a 284-acre campus where generous donors continue to build a bright future. Missouri S&T has many capital improvement needs, from lab renovations and equipment upgrades to landscape enhancements and naming opportunities for new facilities.  Current capital projects underway include:

Miners and friends worldwide are raising the roof on Hasselmann Alumni House, a new campus home for alumni at 11th and Pine. Details about the house and remaining naming opportunities can be found here. There is still time to make a difference and take advantage of the Koeppel Challenge, which offers $1 in matching funding for every $2 contributed. Learn more about the Challenge by contacting Darlene Ramsay, MetE’84, executive director of alumni relations and advancement services, at 573-341-4145 or ramsayd@mst.edu.


James E. Bertelsmeyer Hall

Thanks to the generosity of Jim Bertelsmeyer, ChE’66, Bipin Doshi, ChE’62, and more than 50 chemical engineering alumni spanning seven decades, the dream of a new chemical and biochemical engineering building is becoming a reality on the corner of State and 11th. In April 2013, Missouri S&T broke ground on the 68,500-square-foot facility, which will include research and teaching labs, lecture halls, support space for fabrication and shipping, and faculty and administrative offices. The dedication of Bertelsmeyer Hall is scheduled for fall 2014. There is still time to make a difference by helping with equipment and technology needs. Contact Joan Nesbitt, Vice Chancellor for University Advancement, at nesbittj@mst.edu or 573-341-7808 for more information.
