We’re celebrating Missouri State through our annual giving day, #BearsGive.

Your gift to the MSU Libraries during #BearsGive can ensure we have access to the best resources available, help digitize crucial learning materials, and help us continue to meet the information needs of the university community, the Springfield metropolitan area, the Ozarks, the State of Missouri, and diverse social, cultural, and scholarly communities across the nation and the world.

You can choose for your gift to go to the General Fund which will go to the area of greatest need first or you can write-in where you would like your gift to go within MSU Libraries.

Please login using the top right button and share this campaign – that will help us go that much further! Go Bears!

A transcript of this video will be available for download here.

*In addition, MSU alumni who make a qualifying gift of $50 or more receive a V.I.B.card - Very Important Bear

Visit MSU Alumni Association for additional information how to become engaged with the association and what events are coming to your area.

Last Push for Donors!

We are so close to meeting our goal of 1,905 donors for #BearsGive! 

Your gift, of any amount, can help us hit our mark. There are still thousands of dollars of challenge and matching funds waiting to be unlocked. 

Those funds go to support our students and provide a top-notch Missouri State education. 

One final push - make your gift now!

#BearsGive - Recap To Date

We've been inspired by the generosity of the Missouri State community during #BearsGive! Nearly 1,400 alumni and friends have made a gift to show their support for MSU.

There is still work to be done to hit our goal of 1,905 donors. A gift, of any amount, can help get us closer to our goal. 

Make your gift now to support students on campus today, and those who will be here tomorrow. Go Bears!

There's still time to use matching and challenge gifts to double your impact! There are matches to almost anywhere you can think of. One example is; Cat Shoults is matching gifts for the Dr. Tom Tomasi Biology Summer Research Award in honor of Dr. Tomasi. The two are pictured together below.
