You can provide direct assistance to worthy students by giving to the UMKC Alumni Fund. This fund provides scholarships, technology upgrades and student programming enhancements—which all make UMKC the starting point for so many of our adventures. Every gift, regardless of the amount, makes a real difference to the strength of the university and to the future of our students. All Alumni Fund gifts go directly to support UMKC students.

UMKC Foundation Campaign

Muriel McBrien Kauffman Foundation announces $20 million challenge grant for UMKC Downtown Campus for the Arts.

In recent years, UMKC has made significant progress toward fulfilling its vision as a first-rate urban university. To further support that goal, the UMKC Foundation was established and the $250 million Campaign for UMKC was launched. The seven-year campaign is designed to help UMKC become Kansas City's model research university, to provide scholarship opportunities, attract and retain outstanding faculty, and to continue developing and expanding the university's world-class programs and facilities.

A critical component to the success of this campaign is our alumni and friends. With your support and generosity, we can continue to attract top educators and students to build on our tradition of excellence in education. We cannot do this without you.
