Gift Support for UMB on the Rise

Halfway through this fiscal year (FY2017) philanthropic giving and nongovernment-sponsored research funding at UMB are on strong upward trajectories.

As of Dec. 31

  • Philanthropy brought in $43.4 million, a 25 percent increase over the same period last year. Philanthropic donations comprise 62 percent of UMB’s annual fiscal year fundraising goal of $70.8 million.
  • Private philanthropy (exclusive of nongovernment research support) brought in more than $25.6 million, a 41 percent increase over the same period last year.
  • Nongovernment-sponsored research brought in $17.6 million, an 8 percent increase over same period last year.

Gift dollars are raised primarily through UMB’s schools of dentistry, law, medicine, nursing, pharmacy, social work, and the Graduate School. These philanthropic donations are crucial to providing supplemental funding for scholarships, research, technology, community benefits, and an array of other initiatives throughout the University.
