Mizzou Giving Day: One Day to Make a Difference

Your Gift Has More Impact on Mizzou Giving Day

Mizzou Giving Day is a day for everyone who loves Mizzou to combine our support and maximize our impact. This year’s 24-hour campaign will take place from noon on March 14 to noon on March 15.

Schools, colleges, and campus programs will have the opportunity to earn additional support from two “prize pools”. Prizes will go to the top five finishers in each competition. Generous donors have contributed challenge funds that provide a way for social media users to win funds for the University Libraries.

This year’s challenges include:

  • Most dollars raised by school, college, or program
  • Most donations by school, college, or program
  • 15 social media challenges

The University Libraries priorities for this year’s Giving Day:

Friends of the Library
The University of Missouri Libraries have been leaning on the Friends of the Library since a group of alumni and friends met in the Student Union in 1960 with an idea to make our university stronger. They recognized that a gift to University Libraries impacts every student and every program. Please join us as we set our sights on 1,000 members in Friends of the Library! Great universities have great libraries. Help us build a better Mizzou by supporting the core of the academic experience, our libraries!

Collection Enhancement Fund
This fund provides for the care and growth of our collections. If you are interested in supporting access to scholarly material, this is the fund for you! Help us complete our progress toward $50,000 for collections enhancement.
