Dr. Jay Morgan announces Morehead State University Foundation sets fundraising records for 2022  

Morehead State University President Dr. Jay Morgan has announced fundraising success for the 2022 calendar year. Last year, over 4,000 donors came together to contribute $6.7 million in support. The previous record for calendar-year giving was exceeded by nearly $1 million.   

“Our Foundation is critical to the support of our students. The Foundation is continuing to grow thanks to the support of our generous alumni and donors,” said Dr. Morgan. “Our University would not be where it is today without our loyal donors who believe in Morehead State and want to assist our students.”  

From his first day on campus, Dr. Morgan established increasing private giving for student scholarships as one of the highest priorities for MSU. Since his tenure began, the MSU Foundation raised almost $35 million, much of it going to scholarships. This milestone is one Dr. Morgan attributes to the support of MSU’s alumni, corporate supporters, faculty and staff.   

The funds raised by the Foundation help MSU continue to serve Eastern Kentucky by preparing students with the career skills and experience they need to succeed. 

The MSU Foundation is a non-affiliated corporation and tax-exempt educational foundation designed to assist the University with financial support through privately funded scholarships and support. The total endowment held by the MSU Foundation is now valued at nearly $70 million.
