alumni visiting campus

Are you hosting a guest alumnus on campus or in your virtual learning environment? The UCM Alumni Foundation can assist in making the visit extra special!  The University of Central Missouri has some amazing alumni, and we would like to help shine the spotlight on them and make them feel welcome as they return to campus or interact with your students.  Please fill out the Alumni Visiting Campus Form before so we can help welcome your guest with a gift and possibly stop by to take pictures. If you are hosting more than five alumni at a time, please email and include all the information listed in the form.

Giving to UCM

For nearly 150 years, UCM has thrived because of our faculty and staff's dedication. Every dollar given enhances the work you do here, as an extension of your efforts, while providing access to education for our community. Gifts to the Central Annual Fund support the greatest need at the University of Central Missouri. The Central Annual Fund provides emergency need-based scholarships to students, funds numerous Opportunity Grants to faculty and staff to enhance experiential learning for students, and supports the continued operations of UCM and the Alumni Foundation.

Payroll deduction is the most popular giving method. Other contribution methods include estate planning, marketable securities, in-kind gifts such as personal property, and bequests. Click the links below for the appropriate forms:


The UCM Alumni Foundation launched the Opportunity Grant program in 2013 using gifts to the Central Annual Fund to support targeted, student-centered activities resulting in significant outcomes that benefit the university's learning environment and students' academic experience. Grants start at $100 and range to an individual maximum of $5,000. Click here to learn more about the Alumni Foundation Opportunity Grant Program.


The Alumni Foundation is here to help you engage with alumni through events. If you would like to meet with us to strategize a future event, please complete this form and we will contact you to discuss the details. 

If you want to create a MuleNation celebration around another event, like an athletic watch party or at a professional conference, we recommend checking out a Party in a Box. Are you ready to get this party started? Learn more about our Party in a Box
