Dear Friends,

There are many people who have contributed over the years to

Western’s achievements, and to them we owe our sincere gratitude.

In March, the Missouri General Assembly passed Senate Bill 98

changing Western from a college to a university as of August 28.

Our local legislators worked diligently on Western’s behalf.

Student leaders organized support for Senate Bill 98 and spoke

out strongly for Western. Perhaps most gratifying, the entire

community has supported Western’s effort to be designated a

university. All of us at Missouri Western State University say

“thank you” to those who helped us achieve university


Two very important contributors to Western’s success are

former presidents Dr. Marvin Looney and Dr. Janet Gorman Murphy McCarthy. Both were able to

attend the University Convocation in August and to be recognized for their outstanding leadership

with the first honorary doctorate degrees awarded by Missouri Western State University.

It is significant that Western has achieved university status during the 90th anniversary year of our

founding as St. Joseph Junior College in 1915. The 90-year saga from that great beginning to what

Western is today was made possible by the special efforts of numerous individuals and groups.

Indeed, Western has been built on the commitment of many people over many years.

All of you acknowledged in this publication as contributors to the MWSU Foundation during the

past fiscal year have demonstrated your confidence in Western through your generous investment in

the university and our students. You too have joined the long list of people who are making a bright

future for Western.

We are grateful to all of you. Thank you very much!

Yours sincerely,

James J. Scanlon

Foundation Annual Report 2005



It’s a new day for Western

Gov. Matt Blunt signed legislation

in March that established

Missouri Western State University,

effective August 28, 2005. When he

visited in March for the ceremonial

signing of the legislation, he noted

that university designation must be

earned, and Western’s students and

alumni manifested that Western

deserved to be a university.

But it was really no surprise to those

familiar with the institution. Administrators,

faculty, staff, students, alumni and friends of

Western knew that it already fit the profile of

an excellent American regional university.

Western has been functioning as a

university in every way but name, and it will

now be appropriately recognized for the

institution that it is,” said Dr. James Scanlon,

Western’s president. “Our profile is a firm

foundation for Western’s future as a


As an example, Dr. Scanlon noted that

universities are often known for their

research capabilities, and Western’s faculty

members are teaching faculty who are

actively engaged in applied research. Last

year, faculty presented or published the

results of their research in more than 200

state, regional, national, and international


Western’s faculty and students also work

together on many applied research and

applied learning projects such as internships,

practicums or clinicals. More than 2,000

students from various fields were involved

during the past year in specific internships,

faculty-student research, and other applied

learning experiences that prepare students

for work, careers, and graduate study.

Seventy-nine percent of last year’s graduates

participated in at least one significant

applied learning experience prior to


Western’s students, as a result of their

work with faculty, achieve excellent results

on professional entrance and licensure

exams. They are admitted to law school and

medical school at rates clearly above the

national average. They pass nursing and

allied health licensure exams at rates well

above state and national averages. They

compare favorably with other Missouri

institutions in meeting the Department of

Higher Education’s expectations on the

National Teachers Examination.

A Proud Past

The percentage of permanent faculty at

Western that hold the highest degree required

in their field - more than 80 percent - is higher

than at many regional universities across the

country. And, Western’s academic programs

often hold important national accreditations as

indicators of their quality in comparison with

similar programs in universities.

Two years ago, Western was one of a

select group of colleges and universities

chosen to participate in the National Learning

Communities Project funded in part by a

$1 million grant from the Pew Charitable

Trusts. Western was one of only 12 public

colleges and universities in the country

selected by the American Association of State

Colleges and Universities to participate in a

national project focused on excellence in the

first year of college as a foundation for further

college study toward graduation.

University designation will offer many

benefits to Western, the community, region

and state. For a long time, Western has been a

strong partner in the economic and social

development of our region, and becoming a

university will only serve to advance that

position and give the institution the ability to

create more partnerships with business,

industry, government, the professions, and

other universities.

As a


Western hopes

to offer


programs that

are not offered

in the region,

in fields like

health sciences,

life sciences

and engineering


This will place Western in a better position to

work with others to expand local industry and

attract new businesses to the region.

Western will also be better able to attract

federal government grants, foundation dollars,

and outside contracts. The university

designation may instill more pride in alumni

and friends of the college, resulting in greater

commitments to the financial strength of the

university Foundation. As a university,

Western may attract new students, which will

have a positive effect on the region and


“Today, Western’s economic impact alone

on the larger community is conservatively

estimated to be about $150 million per year,”

said Dr. Scanlon. “Traditionally, universities

have greater impact than colleges on the

economies of their communities, regions,

and states.”

Western’s roots trace back to the founding

of the St. Joseph Junior College in 1915. In

1965 it became Missouri Western Junior

College when the junior college district was

established, and the name was shortened to

Missouri Western College in 1967. The

college moved to its new campus of over 700

acres and the third- and fourth-year curricula

were added in 1969. In 1977 Western became

a part of the state higher education system

and became known as Missouri Western

State College.

– A Promising Future



Dear Friends,

In our last meeting of

the fiscal year, the Foundation

board voted unanimously in

favor of changing the name

of the Foundation to the

Missouri Western State

University Foundation to

coincide with the passing

of Missouri Senate Bill 98.

I was very proud to be a part

of this very historic meeting.

While the Foundation’s name has changed, its mission

remains the same. The Foundation will continue to inspire a

lifelong passion for learning. It will continue to empower a

diverse population of students to succeed as citizens in a

changing world. And by all means, the Foundation will

continue to foster partnerships and vital connections by

encouraging gifts and stimulating investments to further the

cause of Missouri Western State University.

The Foundation’s name change has given the board an

even greater sense of pride, commitment, and enthusiasm.

It is a time for all of us to rally around our university as we

celebrate our proud past and work toward securing a very

promising future for Western and the many students who are

pursuing a quality education.

President, 2004-2005

Fulkerson Center Opens


enator Christopher “Kit” Bond looked out

over the audience of 200 at the Fulkerson

Center’s opening dinner in March and

commented that he saw so many city officials,

he hoped the city had a succession plan in

place if anything happened there.

“The community leadership is very evident

here tonight. What your presence says is that

the community supports this college, and the

college supports the community,” Sen. Bond

said. “This ‘university’ has much to offer the

city, county, region and the entire state.”

Sen. Bond was the featured speaker at the

opening dinner to celebrate the completion of

the Fulkerson Center. The 12,000 sq. ft.

structure houses a large conference and

banquet facility that can be divided into three

rooms. Part of the building project included

breakout rooms for conferences, a training and

assessment center for area businesses to use,

and a geospatial lab. The Fulkerson Center

also houses an Alumni Room. The project was

funded entirely by private donations.

“The Center is a true partnership between

the community and the college, and it will

benefit both,” said Sen. Bond. “The community

that invests in higher education reaps the

benefits for its people and its economy.”

Dr. James Scanlon, Western’s president,

agreed. “The Center tells the story of

Western’s commitment to economic

development in our region. Thanks to you,” he

told the audience, “Western will extend its

focus on applied learning and community partnerships.”

Dr. Scanlon noted that the Center will aid

Western in expanding its services to the public

and private sector, such as assisting employees

in developing new skills, helping displaced

employees find new careers and assisting professionals.

“The Center will accomplish all

this as a partner with business, industry and


Sen. Bond said the Center will aid in the

advancement of the life and health sciences

industries in St. Joseph. “Missouri Western

offers its students a relevant education and

prepares them for the technological revolution.

By helping build this building,” he added,

“You are investing in this great future.”

The Center is named for Marie Fulkerson

and her late husband, Lyman. The Fulkersons

owned and operated the DeMuth Supply Co.

in St. Joseph until 1972.

League for Excellence


n the spring, the Foundation kicked off the Western

League for Excellence, an honorary society for

donors who give unrestricted gifts of $100 or more to

the Foundation in support of Western’s mission. With

the help of 70 community leaders, the development

office began the “Going for the Gold”

campaign to recruit charter members, and to

date, over $100,000 has been donated by more

than 220 charter members.

Jerry Pickman, director of development,

noted that there are two features of donations

to the League: one, all donations must be

unrestricted; and two, League members

express an intent to contribute at a designated level each

year for as long as they are able to do so.

Pete and Staci Gray were the first members of the

Founder’s Circle, which denotes an annual donation of

$5,000 or more. Michael DePriest and his wife Barbara

Braznell were the first lifetime members, which means

their unrestricted gift will be endowed.

Pete said as a member of the Foundation Board, he

realizes how important unrestricted funds are. “Limited

unrestricted funds force the Foundation allocation committee

to make tough decisions,” said Pete. “Hopefully, the League

can help provide more opportunities for students.”

Jerry said providing more opportunities for students is

exactly what the unrestricted donations to the League are

intended for – so students may attend conferences, present

their research, study abroad or take advantage of opportunities

that enhance their educational experience. “If we’re going to

provide that margin of excellence to our students, we need

unrestricted funds.”

Pete, who is president and CEO of Gray Automotive

Products Co., said he and Staci have always supported

Western because they recognize its value and impact in the

community. He noted that his company utilizes Western

students as interns, and he has been very impressed with the

students. In fact, he said two department directors are former

interns, and they hired another intern when he graduated from

Western in May.

“Membership in the League is a great way for people to

say, ‘I’m committed to Western and its students. I’m in it for

the long haul,’” said Jerry.

Those who donate to the League through Dec. 31,

2005 will be considered charter members. League

members receive special correspondence from the

university president and the vice president for

institutional advancement throughout the year.

Stephen Cotter, George Richmond, Stan Hall and Kris

Smith are among many community members who were

recognized at a League for Excellence lunch in March.

Dear Alumni and

Friends of Western,

From scholarships to student assistance to

remodeling, the Missouri Western State University

Foundation had an outstanding year, and it was all

made possible by you and other donors who have

made contributions to the Foundation over the years.

First, I am happy to report that during the past year

the Foundation awarded scholarships to 537 students

from 123 scholarship funds totaling over $430,000. In

addition the Foundation provided assistance for 53

students to attend national professional conferences to

present research papers. The Foundation also contributed $100,000 to the remodeling

of the library from the David and Shirley Bradley Endowment Fund.

Another exciting event was that more than 220 charter members joined the new

Western League for Excellence by generously contributing unrestricted gifts to the


The Foundation also played a large role in the transition from “college” to

“university.” The legislation that designated Western a university prohibited the use

of institutional public funds for the college to university transition, so contributions

from the Leah Spratt Charitable Trust and from Dr. Joe Friedman as well as

unrestricted funds were used to meet the major requirements of this transition.

These are only the major highlights of the past year but they make clear why

this is an exciting time to be associated with Missouri Western State University.

Thank you to all of you who have previously invested in Western and its students.

You have demonstrated your support and your confidence in Western’s future and

we appeal for your continued investment.


Dan J. Nicoson

Vice President for Institutional Advancement and

Executive Director of the MWSU Foundation

Junior College Alumnus is First

Member of Clock Tower Society


always wanted to establish a scholarship for some

deserving person to go to college.” Those are the

words of Ed Vincent, the first member of Western’s Clock

Tower Society, an honorary society of Western donors

that was created this past year. Ed became a member

when he notified the office of Institutional Advancement

that he had included the MWSU Foundation in his

estate plan.

Membership in the Society is extended to all who

have made or will make an estate or deferred gift

commitment, such as a bequest, charitable trust, life

insurance, remainder interest in property, or other

individual estate plans.

Ed, a 1939 graduate of the St. Joseph Junior

College, said he set up the trust to honor his parents

and his sister, who was a 1935 graduate of the

junior college. “They made it possible for me to go

to school and get the education.”

The St. Joseph native retired from Quaker Oats in Fullerton, Calif.

in 1985, and moved back to St. Joseph in 1990. He said when he began

thinking about establishing a scholarship fund, his attorney suggested

that he make a bequest to the Missouri Western State University

Foundation to establish a scholarship endowment. The endowment gift

will be permanently invested and only the accumulated earnings will be

used to support the scholarships annually.

Establishing the trust now meant that Ed could choose the criteria

for the scholarship. The scholarship recipient must be a graduate of

Central High School in St. Joseph and preferably a business major.

“I’m pleased to be able to have a potential scholarship fund,” said

Ed. “I hope it can help some worthy student.”

Foundation Gives Students Opportunities


our contribution makes a difference!

Each year, the Foundation allocates

funds for a variety of student activities,

projects and opportunities. These “extras”

would not be possible without your support.

Travel and Study Abroad

Accounting and finance major Ashley

Falter was one of several students who benefited

from a trip abroad when she participated

in the Global Viewpoint class that traveled to


“The Global Viewpoint study abroad trip

was a valuable learning experience,” said

Ashley. “My most memorable experiences

were mingling with the locals and talking

with them about their culture.” She said she

also learned a lot about how companies

operate in Poland, and about the European

Union. Along with the trip to Poland, the

Foundation helped pay expenses for some of

the students traveling to London, Egypt and

Washington, DC.

International Film Festival

Last year, the Foundation supported the

first Griffon International Film Festival, where

Western students had the opportunity to view

films from all over the world, and filmmakers

offered several workshops for participants.

Forty films were chosen for the festival from

over 175 submitted.

Deny Staggs, assistant professor of

theatre, said the film festival held great value

for Western students. They not only learned a

lot in the master classes, but they were

exposed to independent filmmakers and films

not usually shown in theaters. Also, students

gained experience because they played a large

role in organizing the event.


The Foundation funded Ready.Set.Go, a

pilot program where Admissions personnel

worked with middle school students to help

them start thinking about college.

Admissions counselor Kim Schank visited

over 30 area schools and made presentations

to approximately 3,000 students, talking to

them about classes they need to take in high

school if they want to go to college. Many

middle school students also took advantage of

an invitation to spend a day on campus and

participate in activities.

Conference Presentations

The Student Excellence Fund of the

Foundation provides opportunities for students

to participate in activities that complement

classroom learning, such as attending

conferences. Many Western students are

chosen to present their papers or research

findings at conferences throughout the


This past year, the Foundation supported

13 students in an English class who were

selected to present their papers at a popular

culture conference in

San Diego. More

students were chosen

from Western than any

other undergraduate

institution in the nation.

Also, the

Foundation helped pay

for economics major

Nick Limle to present

his research findings at

an international business conference in

Florida. He was the only undergraduate

student to make a presentation.

“My presentation went exceptionally

well,” said Nick, “considering it was my first

one. I was a little intimidated but it was

definitely a learning experience for me.”

Lingering Melodies

Four students participated in Lingering

Melodies, a program where students sing or

play musical instruments for hospice patients.

Students report that the music has a soothing

effect on the patients, and is an amazing

experience for the students as well. Funds are

used as stipends for the students.

Guest Speakers

The computer science, mathematics and

physics department hosted the conference for

the Missouri section of the Mathematical

Association of America, and the Foundation

helped fund the featured speaker for the


The Foundation also paid for a French

speaker to visit Western to talk about French

culture and the relationship between France

and the United States.

Ways You Can Make a Difference

There are many ways you can make a

difference through gifts to Western. From

contributions to planned giving, there are

many opportunities for you to get involved.

As a public charitable organization, gifts to

the Missouri Western State University

Foundation are deductible at the highest

limits allowed for federal income or estate

tax purposes.

Cash and Annual Fund Gifts

Cash contributions are the most frequent

charitable gift. Checks should be made

payable to Missouri Western State University

Foundation. The most frequent contributions

are to the Annual Fund.

Gifts of Securities –

Stocks, Bonds and Mutual Funds

Charitable gifts of stocks, bonds or mutual

funds that have been held for at least one year

and have appreciated offer special tax

advantages. You will receive a tax deduction

for the full market value of the gift, but you

will not have to pay capital gains tax on the

appreciated amount. If you sell depreciated

stock and contribute the proceeds, you will

receive both a tax deduction for the charitable

gift and a deduction for the capital loss.

Gifts of Real Estate

Donations of appreciated homes, and other

real property, are entitled to an income tax

deduction equal to the full value of the

property and no tax on the capital gain. If

debt-free property is donated, the gift is

deductible at the property’s appraised value. It

may even be possible to make your gift of

property now but still maintain the right to use

the property. By making this gift now, rather

than in your will, you can realize an immediate

income tax deduction.

Memorial Gifts

Any gift may be given in memory or honor of

a friend or family member.


Tangible personal property can be given to

support Western. These gifts may be eligible

for a deduction of the item’s fair market value,

if the gift is related to the ”charitable purpose”

of the university. All personal property gifts

must be approved by the Board of Directors

of the Foundation.

Corporate Matching Gifts

A matching gift program provided through

your employer or board membership may

allow you to increase the value of your gift.

Many companies match charitable gifts made

by their employees, retirees or board members.

Deferred or

Planned Gifts

Deferred gifts help insure Western’s future.

A deferred gift through an estate plan or life

income gift offers you the ability to support

Western but retain the income from those

assets during your lifetime.

Will or Revocable “Living” Trust

A bequest contained in a person’s will or

revocable “living” trust is the most

common form of planned gift.

Charitable Remainder Trust

This gift allows you to irrevocably place cash,

securities or other property in a trust but keep a

specified income for life. This can be done by

an annuity trust or unitrust.

Gifts of Life Insurance

Western can be named as primary or

contingent beneficiary of a life insurance

policy. Life insurance gifts are simple; just ask

the insurance company for the appropriate

forms to make the Foundation the owner and

beneficiary of a policy. Gifts of a policy are tax

deductible, as are future premium payments.

Gifts of Retirement Plans

Naming Western as a primary or contingent

beneficiary of a retirement plan (i.e. IRA, 401(k))

can benefit both Western and your estate. Your

retirement account’s plan administrator can help

you designate Western as a beneficiary.
