COLUMBIA, Mo. - With the holiday season in the air, the University of Missouri Department of Intercollegiate Athletics has received news of a very special gift. The donors, who wish for their names to remain confidential, have generously pledged to give $6.4 million to the Tiger Scholarship Fund over the next 10 years beginning in 2013.
"We are so thankful for this generous gift, and the difference it will make at Mizzou," said Director of Athletics Mike Alden. "This transformational commitment allows us to continue our growth and to be a leader in the Southeastern Conference and nationally. This gift allows us to enhance our facilities and amenities for fans and student-athletes alike, as well as support our scholarship efforts for our men and women," said Alden.
"We're grateful for this wonderful act of generosity," said Senior Director of Development T.J. Leon, who had primary responsibility for solicitation of the gift. "The belief our donors have in Mizzou and our student-athletes is energizing. As we continue our transition into the SEC, facility improvements and scholarship endowments are crucial, and these donors would like to play an active role in us reaching our goals," said Leon.
For information on how to give to the Tiger Scholarship Fund, please call the TSF Office at 573-882-0704, or visit www.tsf-mizzou.com.
