Reasons to Give


There are more than 20,000 reasons to support Mississippi State University. Each reason is a new or returning student who can immediately benefit from private gifts given university-wide. A gift from you may be the catalyst for many other donors who follow your example. If you are not already a donor of Mississippi State, there are many reasons for you to consider making a gift today, including:

  • Your gift is tax-deductible.
  • Your gift makes you an active alumnus or friend of Mississippi State. By making a gift, you will become an active member of the MSU Alumni Association and enjoy all the benefits the membership affords. (For a complete list of the benefits of being an active member of the Alumni Association, click here.)
  • Your gift can support the college or school with which you have a personal affiliation.
  • You can give as a parent to show your support for your son's or daughter’s institution of choice.
  • A gift today, such as a gift for an annual scholarship, will immediately benefit at least one Mississippi State student.
