Gifts may be made online at, by phone at 662-915-5944, or by mail: University of Mississippi, Department of Development, 406 University Ave, Oxford, MS 38655.


Personalized gift funds are created to make contributions in honor or in memory of someone special to you. You can create a fund in their memory, or contribute to one that’s already been set up. To create an endowed fund, the gift minimum is $100,000. This gift can be directed to different areas across campus.

Donor will direct the gift by choosing an allocation:
A memorial gift is a meaningful way to remember someone and have a lasting impact on the University. When making your memorial gift, please specify for whom and for what you are making your gift, and your gift will be directed to the appropriate gift fund.

Donor will make a general gift with no allocation:
Should you wish to provide a memorial gift without a specific allocation, the University will direct your gift in a manner that celebrates the memory of the loved one who has passed after consultation with the individual’s family.


Bi-monthly updates will be sent to the family and will include the names of donors who made a memorial gift. After 90 days, we will send the family a comprehensive letter. If funds have not been designated, we will consult with the family to allocate funds. Should the family have additional needs, please contact Gift Management by email at or by phone at 662-915-5944.
