All alumni are invited to participate in this exciting opportunity to share your history of The W.

The MUW Foundation's Mission

The Mississippi University for Women Foundation is a nonprofit Mississippi corporation organized to foster, encourage, and promote the educational purposes of the University.  In providing important services through pursuit of endowments and other gifts, the Foundation enriches the academic quality and reputation of Mississippi University for Women. Under the leadership of its independent Board of Directors, the MUW Foundation receives gifts on behalf of the University, solicits donations, manages assets, and distributes monies in accordance with prescribed procedures. The Foundation exists solely for the educational support of MUW but operates independently from the University, the Board of Trustees, and the State of Mississippi. The Foundation Board includes alumni and business and community leaders who are committed to furthering the mission of Mississippi University for Women.
