Opportunities for involvement
Corporations support the University of Missouri in many ways. They hire graduates, support research, partner with faculty on projects and provide funds for scholarships, professorships, endowments and facilities improvements.
- Student Aid - Support Mizzou students through scholarships and fellowships.
- Faculty Excellence - Endow or help endow a distinguished professorship or chair.
Facilities Renewal - Provide state-of-the-art research and teaching facilities.
As a benefit to employees, companies can increase the impact of their employees' gifts to Mizzou or other qualifying institutions by matching employees' contributions. Most corporations provide a one-to-one match, while others elect to provide a greater matching amount to further encourage and leverage their employees' philanthropy.
