The Long Blue Line

MUW Foundation

Welcome to the MUW Foundation’s website!  Thank you for visiting us to make an online gift or to learn more about the MUW Foundation and ways to support The W.
The MUW Foundation is a 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to securing private funding to support the mission of Mississippi University for Women. While the State of Mississippi provides a portion of the funds necessary for The W to operate, private funding from alumni, friends, businesses, foundations, and other organizations is essential to The W’s continued success.

Members of the MUW Foundation Board recognize the confidence both the university and our donors have placed in us.  We take our fiduciary responsibility very seriously.  Our actions are based on a strong commitment to transparency in our work, careful stewardship, and prudent investment management in order to maximize the private resources that make such a difference at The W year after year.
We invite you to be a part of transforming students’ lives at The W.  Please join me in giving to the MUW Foundation and looking forward with great optimism to what all The W and our students will achieve next.
