Statement of Stewardship


Statement of Stewardship

Central to the mission of the MVSU Foundation is a commitment to long-term relationships with our donors and the understanding that exceptional stewardship is essential to our success.

Building on this distinctive legacy, our organization values stewardship practices that are rooted in authentic relationships, where donors know the impact of their gifts and recognize their essential role in the life and destiny of Mississippi Valley State University.

MVSU stewardship practices are focused on three core objectives:
  1. Donors will receive prompt and meaningful acknowledgment whenever they give.
  2. Donors will get meaningful and measurable results on their last gift at work before being asked for another one.
  3. Donors will receive the highest level of financial accountability for their gifts/funds.

Diversity & Inclusion

The MVSU Foundation is committed to building an inclusive community free of social bias and exclusion. At the Foundation, diversity and inclusion are rooted in the organization’s core values, which are woven into the fabric of our culture. The Foundation recognizes the value of diversity in persons and in perspectives; values people and the differences that they bring to the organization; and creates an environment in which all staff members feel respected personally and professionally, and have opportunities in which to thrive.

The range of programs and initiatives to which our work contributes, spans every facet of life on campus and in the world community. From working with students to talking with donors inspired to support life-changing programs or areas of the University, our work is fundamentally diverse.

Just as the work done on campus benefits from differing viewpoints, perspectives and experiences, the Foundation recognizes inclusion and diversity as imperative for the success of its mission. Attracting, developing and retaining the best employees gives the MVSU Foundation access to new ideas, promotes better decision making and creates a working environment that promotes mutual respect, cooperation, acceptance and productivity among people from varying backgrounds.
