Mizzou Student Foundation

What is the Mizzou Student Foundation?

The Mizzou Student Foundation (MSF) is a student organization dedicated to serving students and the entire Mizzou community. Our goal is to provide university donors with a personal connection to Mizzou students and educate the student body about the importance of charitable giving to the university and the opportunities afforded to Mizzou students as a result of private donations.

What does MSF do?

In an effort to help students understand the significance of private giving, the Mizzou Student Foundation works diligently throughout the year to raise awareness among students. We host fundraising and stewardship events throughout the year to connect students with Mizzou’s culture of giving back. MSF members also serve as student ambassadors at important university events, including the Jefferson Club dinners and the Chancellor's Society luncheon.


The Mizzou Student Foundation participates in and hosts various events throughout the year. Recent events that MSF has had a part in include:

Rally Mizzou

Hundreds of students leave Mizzou each year because they can’t afford their tuition bill. Often, these students owe the university less than $2,000, far from a fortune but a significant sum of money for any single student. The Mizzou Student Foundation has created Rally Mizzou so that Mizzou students don’t have to face this financial challenge alone. Rally Mizzou raises money to support current Mizzou students and keep the Missouri Tiger family enrolled in class and progressing toward graduation.

In partnership with the Vice Provost of Undergraduate Studies, the Director of Financial Aid, the Director of the Cashier’s Office and key partners in the Office of Advancement, Rally Mizzou will distribute gifts each semester to students who qualify and apply for the award. Awards will go to students who:

  • Owe $2,000 or less
  • Have completed a minimum of 90 credit hours
  • Have no disciplinary holds
Thankful Tigers

Scholarships are an important part of many students’ Mizzou experience. Thankful Tigers is a campaign to send thank you notes to scholarship donors and spread knowledge on the importance of donations to Mizzou!
