  • Supporting MidwayU

When donors provide gifts to support Midway University they are making an impactful investment in an institution that has been helping students for more than 170 years. Thank you for your generosity and support.

Gifts help us provide valuable scholarship support to students who need financial assistance; they help us maintain our historic campus and 200 acres of land and our equine herd; they fuel new programs and initiatives within the classrooms; they provide our student-athletes and athletics programs with the facilities they need to train and compete; they help us stay current on technology and allow us to bring exciting programs and guest lecturers to campus.

We welcome the opportunity to tell you more about our mission here at Midway University and how you can help us continue our rich tradition of changing the lives of our students. Contact us at 859.846.5873.
