24-Hour Giving Challenge

THANK YOU for helping us reach our goal! More than 500 gifts were received on May 7, and we successfully secured a $25,000 challenge gift to MSU! 

Once again, it's time for alumni and friends of MSU to come together...there's $25,000 on the line! 
Alum Ronald Martin ('72) has pledged $25,000 to MSU if 500 gifts are received on May 7. We need YOU, Eagle Empire, so rise up and meet this challenge! 


What is the 24-Hour Giving Challenge?

The 24-Hour Giving Challenge is an exciting day of giving to Morehead State University, where every gift, no matter the size, adds up to something huge! During the first 24-Hour Giving Challenge in May of 2013, an anonymous alum pledged $20,000 to MSU if 500 gifts, of any amount, were received in 24 hours. This challenge was not only met, but crushed! More than 600 gifts totaling more than $30,000 (on top of the $20,000 challenge gift) were received. It was a record day of giving for MSU, and it's time to do it again! 

How much do I have to give?

As much, or as little, as you want! Whether your gift is $5, $50 or $500, it will all add up to $25,000! 

What will my gift support? 

Your gift will be used to support whatever cause you choose, whether it's a scholarship, academic department or athletic program. View a list of available funds here

Why should I participate? 

Why not? Every single gift, no matter the amount, is important and counts not only toward this challenge, but toward our alumni participation.  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!

How do I give?

Give online here, call the Office of Alumni Relations & Development at 606-783-2033 or 800-783-ALUM or make your gift at one of our regional Challenge events, listed below. Gifts must be made and received on May 7; pledges will not count towards the goal. 

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 7 and help us rise to the challenge!


Greek Alumni Challenge - The Greek organization with the highest percentage of participation among their alumni will receive a $500 contribution to their respective organization scholarship fund, or the MSU Foundation fund of their choice! **When making your gift online, be sure to enter the name of your Greek Organization in the comments box!
