Welcome to the Giving Department

Thanking those who make a difference

In honor of the vision of its founders and of the outstanding leadership and service of friends and donors, the Missouri Southern Foundation established the Southern Lantern Society. Through the Society, the Foundations recognizes individuals, corporations, foundations, and organizations that have contributed private resources to improve educational opportunities for students at Missouri Southern State University.

Membership in the Southern Lantern Society is granted to individuals whose cumulative giving to the University is $5,000 or more and to corporations and organizations whose cumulative giving totals $10,000 or more. Charter members of the Lantern Society are individuals, corporations and organizations that contributed a minimum of $500 before January, 1985.

Missouri Southern is honored to recognize the Lantern Society Contributors. Thank you for making a difference for the future of Missouri Southern.
