MSU Choral Endowment

This campaign ended on January 19, 2018, but you can still make a gift to Missouri State University by clicking here!

With your help, the Missouri State Choirs will have the necessary funding for important opportunities both this year and for years to come! 

During the 2017-2018 year, the Men’s Chorus is performing at the Missouri Music Educators Association Annual Conference, the Women’s Chorus is performing at a special holiday event at Silver Dollar City, and the Chorale is performing in Baton Rouge for the National Collegiate Choral Organization National Conference, and in Oklahoma City for the American Choral Directors Association. The Chorale will be touring to Iceland, Norway, and Sweden, and China. We even had the Grand Chorus sing with the Pride Band this fall at a Bears’ Home Football Game!

With your help, this campaign will make a lasting impact on the lives of our choral music students.

Right now, we’re in the process of building the MSU Choral Endowment. We plan to raise 1 million dollars in the next few years. Our goal this year is to raise at least another $50,000 this year, which would match the amount raised last year!  

Your gift and support allows MSU to have a stronger presence in the world, funding opportunities for students to experience other cultures, making us more empathetic to others across the world - and to truly become better citizens. 

With your support, our students can continue to take advantage of these unique opportunities provided to them through the hard work they put in!

The incredible thing about this endowment is that it will last forever. It’s like a long-term savings account, where each year, we only spend the interest! Not only does your gift support current students, it supports students for years to come!

Thank you for your support of the MSU Choral Studies program.

If you have any questions regarding this project or incentives, please contact

*In addition,  MSU alumni that make a qualifying gift of $25 or more receive an Active Alumni Member card.
