Corporate & Foundation Giving

Active collaboration with corporate and foundation partners is a critical component of UMSL’s success in fulfilling our mission in the region. We collaborate across campus to bridge the gap between your philanthropic priorities and the university’s needs and strengths. 

These strategic partnerships drive innovation and opportunity and forge vital connections with community and industry leaders who support advancing education, research, and scholarship at the largest public research university in Missouri’s most economically important region. Our corporate and foundation partners experience a tremendous return on their investment in the University, measured in the significant impact our graduates have on the St. Louis region where nearly 80% choose to live and work after obtaining their degree.

Partnering with UMSL can help your organization stand out in a competitive environment by:
  • building a larger community presence through philanthropic gifts;
  • making a lasting impact on the lives and education of current and future UMSL students; and
  • boosting employee morale through volunteer engagement at UMSL.
