A major component of Mississippi State University’s private support initiative is the Annual Giving Program. This program allows alumni and friends to make annual contributions. Gifts designated for the “Mississippi State Fund” are used by the university in the areas of greatest need. However, donors may designate their gift to any area of the university they choose to support, such as a specific college or school.
With the generosity of loyal alumni, parents and friends on a consistent annual basis, Mississippi State can be successful in its endeavors. A gift through the Office of Annual Giving touches lives every day and improves the total educational experience for all MSU students - the reason we exist.
Annual gifts also provide a way for graduates or friends to activate their membership in the MSU Alumni Association. A gift of any amount made through the Office of Annual Giving activates the donor's membership in the Alumni Association for one year and enables alumni to reap the benefits of active membership.

Many of the traditions, activities and programs you loved as an MSU student, along with those you have come to enjoy as a friend of the institution, can remain a part of the university through annual support. Make a gift today in support of your Mississippi State!
