Development Efforts

Phone Campaign

Smiling Students

Thank you to CHPA Alumni for answering the call!

Alumni from the College of Humanities and Public Affairs were contacted by Student Callers and asked to support their department and College. Phone pledges from CHPA alumni totaled a record $35,911 last fiscal year! Callers also updated addresses, collected e-mail addresses, checked for matching gift opportunities and provided updates for the University and College.

When a student caller contacts you, please consider making another gift, increasing your gift, or making a gift for the first time. Your gifts to the College of Humanities and Public Affairs help current and future students, faculty, and the overall success of Missouri State University!

Would You Like to Contribute?

The size of scholarships at both the graduate and undergraduate levels needs to be augmented, as does the outside speaker (Warren) lecturer fund. In addition, while Strong Hall is quite lovely and is equipped with state-of-the-art projection systems, it still lacks artistic decoration such as paintings and sculptures. If you would like to send a donation to help the College of Humanities and Public Affairs aid its undergraduate and graduate students or in other ways enhance our educational mission, please print out this form and send it to: Missouri State University Foundation, 901 S. National Ave., Springfield, MO 65897-0089.
