Dear Friends,

I joined the Missouri Western Foundation staff this past September, and I am so happy to be here! I have enjoyed meeting University employees, alumni and community members, and most importantly, our donors. I appreciate the warm welcome I have received, and if I have not met you yet, please reach out to me.

In the short time I have been here, I have realized that Missouri Western is fortunate to have a large base of supporters and donors, and I truly appreciate that. I am especially grateful for your undesignated gifts to the Western League for Excellence, because those funds can be used where they are needed most. In this time of declining state allocations, that is more important than ever.

Last year, your undesignated gifts to the Foundation provided over $130,000 of support to the University to help fund equipment, guest speakers, visiting artists, students presenting research at conferences, and much more!

THANK YOU. Please consider increasing your level of support, as it is needed now more than ever! Together we succeed!
