Your gift to the DSU Foundation enables great things at Delta State.

Since 1924 our University has been a transformational force in the lives of its students, faculty, staff and friends, as well as in the Mississippi Delta. This power to change lives is supported by the hospitable environment that is an observable feature of Delta State’s culture and the excellence with which it instructs, supports, and enriches its students, alumni and friends. It is known for the personal care it gives while shepherding its stakeholders through change to a better future. No other organization has done more to propel leaders and those committed to education from some of the harsh realities of the Delta to success in life.

Your gift is now more important than ever to DSU.

The economic growth outlook for the Bolivar County region continues to progress, but as tuition and fees increase, this presents a continuing and ongoing challenge. Facing multiple public demands for constrained tax revenues, the State of Mississippi has been decreasing its support of public colleges and universities. In fact, state funding of Delta State University has decreased 14% since 2016. As most of us are well aware, the cost of attendance is more than just tuition. It includes tuition, books, supplies, room and board (regardless of where you live), transportation, meals, and personal expenses.

A gift from you would allow us to rely less on tuition and fee increases. The more support we have from alumni, friends, and contributors to the fund, the larger difference we can make in the lives of our students.

Thank you!
