Missouri State's crowdfunding platform, IMPACT, allows Bears to band together and make a direct impact on the causes that matter most to them. Current students, faculty and staff are invited to use IMPACT to fund initiatives and programs.

IMPACT enables students, faculty and staff to raise funds in support of the Bear community. Projects in the past have been used to create critical hands-on learning opportunities, purchase state-of-the-art classroom equipment, support clinical assignments in rural and under-served areas, fund travel to competitions abroad and so much more.

Gifts through crowdfunding are tax deductible and donors will receive a tax receipt upon making their gift.
