Pursue the Future Campaign
Total Goal: $40 Million
Truman State University began the advanced gifts, or “quiet phase,” of the five-year “Pursue the Future” campaign on July 1, 2013. The public phase was announced on Oct. 9, 2015, and the campaign will conclude on June 30, 2018.
As the campaign’s top priority, Truman is seeking to substantially elevate its scholarship program to a level that provides more opportunity and access to a Truman education. Scholarships make a tangible difference in the lives of students. Few gift opportunities have more direct impact than providing a financial helping hand in the educational process, and ensuring a Truman education for deserving students is at the core of the University mission. A robust scholarship program helps attract students to Truman and allows qualified students with significant financial need who wish to attend the University the opportunity to do so.
