About the UCM Foundation
People often assume that state dollars cover the expense to operate a public university. Not so. Every year thousands of generous donors help support the University of Central Missouri. Their gifts are processed through the UCM Foundation, a private, nonprofit corporation and an IRS-authorized 501(c)(3) charitable organization.
In keeping with its mission to raise and manage private support for the University of Central Missouri, the UCM Foundation makes gift counts. It does this first by securing contributions, then by ensuring gifts benefit the specific areas donors designate or helps to finance the university’s greatest needs. Private support makes it possible for Central Missouri to provide strong academic programs and the quality learning experience that positions our students for career success, resulting in better communities and a stronger nation.
Do you know that without the financial support of our alumni and friends, many of the things that make UCM special would not be possible? Here are just a few items our donors contribute to:
- Buildings where classes and events are held
- Tools and resources that provide our students a quality academic experience
- World-class faculty
- Educational opportunities such as study abroad, professional development and competitions
- And even helping to keep the lights on
