This is the time. This is the place.

When UMKC and the UMKC Foundation unveiled a plan to raise $250 million in seven years, some said we were being overly ambitious — even unrealistic.

Well, if you haven’t heard by now, we were unrealistic: In reality, we raised $250 million in only six years.

Thank you to all of you who have contributed to help us reach this amazing milestone a full year ahead of schedule. UMKC has a lot to show for it: new buildings, outstanding faculty members and additional scholarship dollars to help us attract the best and brightest students to study here.

We’ve done a lot already thanks to The Campaign for UMKC and the support so many of you have shown. UMKC is excelling — sometimes even beyond our dreams. But we’re not done yet.

As we head into the final months of this campaign, at the UMKC Foundation we are ready to roll up our sleeves and see what else we can accomplish to make UMKC one of the country’s top urban institutions of higher learning.

Let’s continue to reach and dream — even if some people may say it’s unrealistic.
