About the Truman State University Foundation

Since its creation in 1980, the Truman State University Foundation has advanced the University’s mission to provide an outstanding liberal arts education for smart and curious students as they pursue lives that matter.

Private gifts are essential to providing the type of  high-quality academics and affordable price Truman is known for, and the Foundation helps match generous donors with meaningful opportunities that have an impact on our lively community of learners.
