The Campus Giving Campaign is an annual fundraising effort that provides MSU faculty and staff an opportunity to directly impact our community through charitable contributions to the University. Your support makes a difference in the lives of our students and demonstrates your continued commitment to Morehead State University. You may complete and return our paper form
or give online
Why should I give?
Like many other nonprofit institutions, MSU needs the support of individuals to carry out its mission. Your gift will directly benefit students and academic programs at MSU. Also, when faculty and staff invest in MSU it shows other donors our dedication to our mission and makes them want to invest too.
How much should I give?
You determine the size of your gift according to your own financial capacity and charitable interests. Every gift makes a difference at MSU, your participation is most important. Some of our faculty and staff support the University with Leadership Annual Gifts. The Circle of Excellence recognizes individuals who demonstrate a leadership commitment to MSU through annual gifts of $1,000 or more.
You decide where to designate your gift
What fund can I give to?
. More than 20 percent of faculty and staff choose to make unrestricted gifts to the Fund for Excellence. These gifts provide flexible dollars that meet the greatest needs of the University. Other contributors may choose to restrict their gifts to a specific department or program while others might support endowments, scholarships, athletics or technology improvements.
Will I receive any benefits in return for my gift?
All donors to the campus campaign who give at the $25 level will receive a $10 gift card to the University Bookstore. Donors may also be eligible for prizes and other special events. However, the best benefit you can receive is the knowledge that your gift has made a difference for MSU students and programs!
How does payroll deduction work?
Payroll deduction is the easiest and most convenient way to make a gift. You can use the online form
to specify the amount you would like automatically deducted from each paycheck and where your support should be designated. You can have an amount deducted until further notice or until a specified total has been reached.
Who will know about my gift?
In an effort to increase participation, the Office of Development will publish an honor roll of donors listing the names of all faculty and staff who have contributed to the campaign. The amount of your gifts will remain confidential. If you wish to remain anonymous, contact the Office of Development at 783-2033.
Can I make a gift jointly with my spouse/partner?
Several MSU employees have spouses/partners who work here as well; or their spouse/ partner is an alumnus, but not an MSU employee. You may choose to make your gifts as an individual or as a couple.
