Giving to MU


Manchester University’s Office of Advancement will be closed December 23rd through January 1st for the holidays.  Credit card gifts processed via our secure website by midnight EST on December 31st will be credited to 2017.  However, if you normally call in or mail in a credit card gift and it is received during that week, it will be processed on our return to the office and credited to 2018.  Please note:  Gifts via check must be postmarked by December 31st for 2017 credit.


In this world it is not what we take up, but what we give up,
that makes us rich.

- Henry Ward Beecher

In order to continue to graduate persons of ability and conviction, Manchester University relies on the generosity of our alumni and friends. Receiving the excellent education that Manchester delivers requires significant resources, updated technology, comfortable and functional spaces, and top-quality faculty and staff.

Investing in Manchester and our students provides dividends well into the future. Every person who graduates from Manchester University stands on the shoulders of those who went before – people who paved the way for those they would never meet – maybe even YOU! 

Please consider how you can help current students to grow through personal and academic exploration at Manchester. Your gifts enrich classroom experiences, support mentoring and one-on-one research with dedicated faculty and maintain a safe and welcoming campus. 

In turn, Manchester University graduates go on to better our world by living productive, compassionate lives that improve the human condition. 

Thank you for your continued interest in the mission of Manchester University!

NOTE: When a high percentage of alumni give, it demonstrates our loyalty to Manchester and strengthens the institution's leverage with foundations and other potential donors. Every person matters. Every gift counts!
