Individual donors who support The University of Southern Mississippi are invaluable by providing unparalleled opportunities for students, faculty and staff. These donors continue the tradition of excellence and generosity at Southern Miss.

The USM Foundation is proud to publicly recognize donors who continue to assist the University in achieving excellence. Based on annual and lifetime giving, alumni, family and friends of the University receive recognition in various giving societies. Gifts to the USM Foundation are publicly acknowledged in recognition and promotional efforts of the Foundation and/or The University of Southern Mississippi. Unless directed by the donor to restrict publication, the USM Foundation deems itself to be authorized to publish or promote all gifts through its usual means. 

We invite you to learn more about the USM Foundation’s donor recognition societies and the many ways we strive to thank our most valued supporters!
