Giving Opportunities

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 Ridolfi, 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.

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:

Advanced Construction and Materials Laboratory

The Advanced Construction and Materials Laboratory will create a new home for construction materials research and development by significantly adding to the facilities involved in the design, testing, monitoring and evaluation of new and repaired structures. Details about the lab can be found here. or here

The estimated cost of the expansion is $6 million. Making this strategic campus project a reality will take teamwork. We are pleased to announce that a gift of $3 million in support of the laboratory has been secured thanks to the generosity of alumnus James A. Heidman, CE'65. This gift will be used to match any future gift dollar-for-dollar up to $3 million. For information on the laboratory expansion please contact Sue Wallace, Senior Development Officer, at 573-466-3202 or wallacesue@mst.edu.

Hasselmann Alumni House

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, Assistant Vice Chancellor of Alumni Relations and Advancement Services, at 573-341-4145 or ramsayd@mst.edu.

Schrenk Hall: an anchor for innovation

Originally built in 1933, Schrenk Hall is home to Missouri S&T's biological sciences and chemistry departments. Schrenk Hall currently hosts research in early cancer detection in the Center for Single Nanoparticle, Single Cell, and Single Molecule Monitoring, pioneering polymer and surface materials research in the Coatings Institute, and bioenergy production research in the Center for Statistical and Computational Modeling of Biological Complexity. A much needed rebuild and renovation of this facility will expand research space, modernize classrooms and labs and improve accessibility and energy conservation. 85% of all students use Schrenk Hall making it one of the most utilized buildings on campus. The renovation and expansion will add 99,000 sq. feet of new construction. 10 new laboratories, 4 new classrooms, and a 220 person lecture hall. The project will cost an estimated $52 million.

Naming opportunities are available in the new facility. For more information contact Kristen Snyder Gallagher, Executive Director of Development for the College of Arts, Sciences, and Business at 573-341-6050 or gallagherkr@mst.edu.
