Perkins-Brown

Serving as chairman of the MUW Foundation’s Board of Directors continues to be an honor for me as I look ahead at the bright future Mississippi University for Women has before it. With the inauguration of President Nora Miller earlier this year, we are writing a new chapter in the institution’s history. Our extended family of alumni, students, faculty, staff, and friends is what makes our university such a special and welcoming place brimming with possibilities.

Private support from donors like us is critical to advancing The W’s mission to provide a high-quality education in a personalized learning environment. Our student-centered approach and commitment to teaching and learning inside and outside the classroom is what makes a difference in thousands of students’ lives.

Our gifts in support of scholarships, teaching, career preparation, extracurricular programming, and personal growth opportunities make a direct impact on our students’ success. We appreciate your continued contributions that allow The W to excel in preparing students for their futures.

The MUW Foundation recognizes and appreciates the confidence our donors have in our work to help support the institution. Our board members are committed both to the university’s goals and to the MUW Foundation’s goals in support of the university. Working together, we reap greater rewards year after year, and it is our students who benefit from our efforts.

If you have not yet made a gift this fiscal year, please join me in giving before June 30, 2019, so that we may finish the year strong. My passion for giving is based on my own personal journey to The W made possible by an academic scholarship. Several oftstated sentiments come to mind as I pen this letter, all of which I would say to you personally, if we were having a cup of coffee….

Now is the time to make our gift!!

Pay it forward for this current and next generation of students eager to learn and grow!

Are you engaged with our beloved alma mater in a way that gives back to the “students of today”?

Looking at your past gifts to The W and your current year gifts, are you satisfied with your priority to “give back” to MUW? Is this the year to increase your gift (You know monthly deductions make it easier than ever!)

There are a number of ways to give from making an online contribution at give.muw.edu to making a planned gift with the assistance of our staff. They are here to help you support The W and are happy to answer any questions you may have in order to find the best giving options for you.

Thank you for being an important part of The W’s continued success, but more thank you in advance for sharing generously as you can in this new chapter.
