Our Annual Fund Goal is $2.25 Million

The coronavirus has placed a temporary hold on the hiring of our Computer Professionals program graduates. Those hires constitute 100% of MIU’s tuition revenues during this current stretch between January and August. During this temporary suspension of tuition revenues, those funds must come primarily from your donations.

Our Annual Fund is the life-blood of our University. It supplements MIU’s tuition revenues in supporting all the operations of the University—from faculty research to food service, from new curricular innovations to road maintenance.

All colleges and universities, like most nonprofits, rely on gifts to supplement tuition revenues, which are inadequate to cover even our basic operations. MIU is fortunate in its ability to operate more cost-efficiently than other institutions, due in part to the volunteer
spirit of its devoted faculty and staff.

Thus, only 20% of MIU’s operating income comes from gifts. But that 20% is absolutely crucial—and never more so than today. The coronavirus has placed a temporary hold on the hiring of our Computer Science Professionals program (ComPro) graduates. And those ComPro hires constitute 100% of MIU’s tuition revenues during this current stretch between January and August.

So MIU needs funds to continue operations, more than ever before. And, during this temporary
suspension of tuition revenues, those funds depend entirely on your donations.

Your support is CRUCIAL. From $5 to $50,000, every gift and every dollar is absolutely
vital.

Our Annual Fund goal is $2.25 Million. And we’re half-way there. Last year, with your help, we succeeded in raising $2,250,147… we made it by a hair. This year, we have farther to go.

And it is far more crucial.

If you have ever given before, or ever had a thought to support MIU, now is that time. Our hour of need is now.

Once we get through this COVID pandemic, our ComPro graduates will be hired and our revenues will rebound.

Many of you are facing uncertainties and challenges now. Whatever your situation may be, just know that your gift is crucial. It is foundational to MIU’s success and security.
