Without your support, our students' goals would only be a dream.

Every day, the Southeast community sees the impact of our donors’ generosity. Giving to any need is a deeply personal choice. The Foundation works with donors to make sure you are supporting the cause that matters most to you. Fortunately, we have many areas where you can make a difference or you can give to the University Fund, which is used where it's needed most.

Endowed Giving

Endowed scholarships and endowed funds are long-term, lasting funds that generate annual income, a portion of which is either awarded each year to a scholarship recipient or used for expenditures as outlined by the donor.

Planned Giving

Planned giving allows you to leave a lasting impact after your lifetime. Let us help you find a charitable plan that both provides for your family and supports Southeast.

Annual Giving

Annual gifts allow us to enhance the opportunities offered to current and future students. Unlike endowed gifts, annual gifts are used in the current operating year, providing discretionary funds to be allocated where they are most needed.


IMPACTSoutheast is the official crowdfunding platform of Southeast Missouri State University, promoting projects from across campus to help impact our community. Choose a project to support, enter your donation amount, and finalize your transaction to make your impact.

  • KRCU

    KRCU at Southeast Missouri State University includes three stations that provide in-depth news and quality music programming to over 350,000 people in its service regions of Southeast Missouri, Southern Illinois, and the Parkland. 
  • Power of Women

    The annual Power of Women event allows a unique opportunity for area entrepreneurs and philanthropists to come together to raise scholarship funds while empowering, transforming, and connecting with their next generation of colleagues and customers. It is a perfect way to pay it forward, to propel the next generation further by empowering young women with the gift of education, something that breaks barriers and provides no limits to their potential.  
  • Walk for Women

    Walk for Women was initially developed by Cindy Gannon as a way to recognize the accomplishments of our female student-athletes, while helping to raise money to support athletic scholarships. Since its inception, Cindy has guided this event, which has raised more than $500,000 for athletic scholarships. In 2017, Director of Athletics Brady Barke announced because of her decade long commitment to the event and her efforts to champion women’s athletics, the event would be renamed in her honor and moving forward would be known as the Cindy Gannon Walk for Women.
