Each year Mansfield alumni, friends, students and MU faculty and staff have historically pulled together and expressed their loyalty to the University through their annual donations - it's The Mansfield Way! All of these gifts, regardless of size, are greatly appreciated. Whether you are making your first gift to MU or a new graduate giving back, your contributions are just as important as the sizeable donations of a long-time contributor. Regardless of the size, every gift is an impressive statement about your commitment to your alma mater.
Investing in MU through the Annual Fund allows you to have an immediate impact on the lives of students by allowing us to meet current needs, including providing vital funding for scholarships and other initiatives that benefit the university's strategic direction. Unlike endowed funds, annual gifts are used in the current operating year, providing discretionary funds to be allocated where there is greatest need. The flexibility provided by unrestricted gifts means these can be leveraged with other donors' gifts for greater impact.
The Mansfield Annual Fund gives every alumnus, friend and parent the opportunity to make a difference. By making a gift to the Mansfield Annual Fund, you will be helping Mansfield strengthen existing educational programs while enabling the institution to seize new opportunities in the future. Please consider making a gift today.
