Basketball Alumni Offer $25K in Challenge


Members of 1978-79 men’s basketball conference championship and Hall of Fame team are providing $25,000 as a matching gift challenge to support the men’s basketball program.

The matching gift challenge runs through Dec. 31 and is designed to help generate much needed support for operations, recruitment and scholarships for the program. The challenge applies to all gifts and commitments made to the Men’s Basketball Fund, which provides multipurpose support to meet the rising needs of the program.

All one-time gifts to men’s basketball made by the end of the challenge will be matched one-to-one. For example, a gift of $500 would earn a match of $500, and the program gets $1,000 in total.

To encourage sustained giving, all recurring gifts (e.g. monthly, quarterly, annually) set up by the deadline will be matched as well. Matching funds will apply to the entire pledged amount for up to three years.

One-time and recurring gifts can be made at Checks, made payable to Truman State University Foundation with “Men’s Basketball” in the memo line, can be sent to: Truman State University, Advancement Office, 100 E. Normal Ave., Kirksville, MO 63501-4221. For pledges of $1,000 or more not set up through the recurring gift option, contact Charles Hunsaker, executive director for University advancement, at
