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!

Online Giving Is on the Rise

UMB closed fiscal year 2016 (FY16) with the highest number of online transactions and funds raised in its history; in fact, we saw a 41 percent increase in total online giving and a 21 percent increase in the number of online transactions processed as compared to FY15.

The Office of Philanthropy attributes these results to an increased trend in online giving, showing a steady rise since FY10, and partly to the university’s updated online giving websites, which give our alumni, students, and friends a more vibrant, informational, and social giving experience, among other factors.

The current fiscal year is on target to again show positive growth in both number of transactions and funds raised online.

This Universitywide center, located in the Health Sciences and Human Services Library, will be “a place where motivated health care thinkers and doers… with diverse capabilities will find sources of intellectual property information, as well as diverse tools useful in promoting innovation.”

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.
