Directly impact the lives of students: you’ll do that here.

Your impact is measured in more than the contributions that may come from your bank account. Gifts to Southeast Missouri State University support and strengthen the entire student experience — from scholarships to state-of-the-art facilities to outstanding faculty. 

More than 7,700 people made gifts to Southeast in the past year, totaling almost $8 million and funding more than 950 endowments. This money is put to use immediately to enhance the student educational experience. We couldn’t do it without you.  

Thank you.
