Mizzou for Life
Mizzou Alumni Association membership is on the rise.
Life memberships support the Mizzou Alumni Association’s vision of a gateway that fosters lifelong connections.
Over the past five years, overall membership in the Mizzou Alumni Association has grown nearly 25 percent to 44,415 in fiscal 2012, making our association one of the fastest growing in the nation.
Life membership is on the rise as well. In 2001-02, the Tiger Plaza campaign helped raise awareness of our life membership program, and I am proud to say that the number of life members has been climbing steadily ever since. Earlier this year, we reached a milestone when Brittany Ebbertt Burris, BS Acc, M Acc ’02, became our 10,000th life member. Congratulations, Brittany!
Why is this important? The alumni association is a nonprofit organization that generates 75 percent of its income. Life members in the association are vital because they allow us to sustain our comprehensive support of Mizzou. Their commitment to Mizzou enhances the association’s scholarships, faculty support and alumni programs.
It is easier than ever to join as a life member. The Easy Life plan allows alumni to make 12 automated monthly payments. I invite you to consider this popular new approach and commit to Mizzou for life.
I thank each of our 10,165 life members for the tremendous impact you make on Mizzou and our alumni programs.
