School of Social Work All Gifts Count Campaign

The School of Social Work celebrated another successful All Gifts Count Campaign, a month-long giving initiative held in March. At the close of the campaign, the School had raised $15,780 from 200+ donors, surpassing their goals of $15,000 from 150 donors.

Coinciding with National Social Work Month, All Gifts Count jointly celebrates the work and commitment of social work professionals, and helps raise funds to improve UM SSW’s effort and its impact.

Thanks to all alumni, students, faculty, staff, and friends who supported this campaign!

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.
