An endowment gift to University of Missouri-St. Louis today provides a brighter picture for our future. When you make a donation to our endowment, you give a gift with both immediate and long-term benefits.

Here's how it works: Endowment donations are invested. A portion of the annual income from the investment is used to address immediate needs at University of Missouri-St. Louis. The remaining funds are reinvested to ensure indefinite support.

Check Out This Potential Scenario

Couple Smiling Longtime supporters Susan and Charlie have two goals: First, they want to make sure UMSL continues to receive support after they're gone. Second, they want to memorialize Charlie's parents, Mr. and Mrs. Jones.

Susan and Charlie make a $25,000 donation to UMSL, which we invest, and each year, a portion of the income from the invested money will be used to support our mission in honor of the Joneses. Plus, Susan and Charlie get a federal income tax charitable deduction on their taxes because they made a lump-sum gift.
