Morehead State is being offered a high reward with a unique challenge!

An anonymous donor has pledged $20,000 if 500 gifts are received on May 16. Your gift will have a tremendous impact for students at MSU, funding things such as:

  • student scholarships
  • classroom & lab improvements
  • student software & technology updates
We need YOU on May 16, so RISE UP EAGLE EMPIRE and meet this challenge. And remember, the perfect gift is the one you make!

Why Your Participation Matters:

Every single gift, no matter the amount, is important and counts toward our alumni participation. This year, we are striving to reach a new goal of our highest alumni participation rate ever by the end of our fiscal year on June 30. This participation rate is what helps determine our inclusion on the U.S. News & World Report's list of the top public universities in the south; a list we have been included on for nine consecutive years. So, no matter the amount, your gift will make a difference!

Note: You don't have to be an alumni to support this cause! Support from our friends plays a crucial role in the growth and development of our students, facilities and academic programs. So, spread the word! Anyone can give on May 16 and help us rise to the challenge!
