Decades before the UCM Alumni Foundation was even a thought, alumni and friends shared their financial resources to help advance the University of Central Missouri. It all started when the campus’ original 16 acres were donated by a local citizen in 1871. Today, the generosity of our community allows the university to deliver high-quality, affordable higher education by creating new scholarships, increasing faculty support, funding cutting-edge facilities and supporting innovative programs.

The UCM Alumni Foundation honors generous donors and their commitment to the institution through recognition in the following giving societies.
