Plant A Seed, Watch It Grow

The towering canopy of oak trees that now anchor the geographic and emotional center of Ole Miss didn’t start that big. Everything grand and powerful was once small and new. We view all areas of our university that way.

When you give to the University of Mississippi, you strengthen the bonds of the Ole Miss family. You help make the place you love continue to inspire beautiful memories and loyal devotion for future generations of students. Your gift funds scholarships, faculty, new buildings, even the Grove. Universities, like families, only thrive when they are nurtured.
