When you make a gift to the Truman Endowment Fund, you help provide perpetual resources to support the programs and activities of Truman State University. This fund provides critical support necessary to meet the greatest and changing needs of delivering a high-quality education to students.
Help Enhance Student Learning
Earnings from the endowment support a variety of value-added student-learning experiences that range from study abroad, technology and equipment upgrades, scholarships, faculty development, library enhancements and other programs deemed to benefit students and student learning.
This fund is administered by the Truman State University Foundation Board of Directors, with discretion from the University President.
While the majority of Foundation funds are restricted for designated purposes by donors, the Truman State University Endowment Fund provides a significant giving opportunity for current major and planned gift donors to meet evolving needs of the University.
"I chose Truman because of the affordability and its academic reputation. I looked at other schools, both public and private, and discovered that Truman is on par academically with so many universities but for a fraction of the cost. I knew that I wanted a stellar education but didn’t want to graduate with thousands of dollars in debt, so Truman fit that mold perfectly."
