Annual Funds - Restricted

Participation Matters

Agencies such as US News and World Report utilize giving statistics in their rankings each year. Additionally, many private foundations and corporations look at how many people give, rather than the amount of each gift, when determining whether to make large contributions to Mount Union. Your donation of any amount may help spur larger gifts to the University.

Every gift, no matter the size, makes a difference in the lives and educational experiences of our students.
