You gift to Truman not only strengthens the University, it also provides a way for you to leave your own legacy on the Truman campus or to make a tribute or memorial gift in honor of someone special.
As a part of Truman’s 150th anniversary celebration, you are invited to make your mark on Truman’s campus by joining the efforts to renovate Sesquicentennial Plaza. Naming options range from a customized brick for a $150 donation to an opportunity to name the plaza.
