Annual Fund

Millsaps’ Annual Fund is one of the most important ways you can support the mission of the college. Gifts made to the Annual Fund provide support to important areas on campus, including financial aid, the enhancement of academic support, career readiness programming and student activities. These current-use funds help pay for programs and equipment campuswide, from curriculum projects and library resources to microscopes and technology.

Making an Impact

“I was able to triple major in philosophy, economics and mathematics. I served as SBA president and student body treasurer. And I was a member of the nationally competitive mock trial team. My scholarships contributed greatly to my selection as a 2018 Rhodes Scholar. Without scholarship support, I would have needed to spend many more hours a week working a job to help with college expenses instead of focusing on my academics and leadership opportunities.”
