Biology Department Contributions

The Department of Biology would like to thank all those who have been so generous with their contributions.  Your contributions help us to provide quality education, educational opportunities, and financial assistance to those seeking an education through Biology.

Areas of need include Biology Scholarships, Biology equipment, and the Biology General Fund for areas of greatest need. You may also contribute to other Biology areas of your choosing.

To make an online contribution to Biology, please use this link to contribute online. You will be taken to the Pittsburg State University Foundation Online Gifts form.  You will need to specify the fund 'College of Arts and Sciences' and then select 'Biology'. Please list the area of your choice in the 'Comments' box. If distributing your donation across multiple Biology areas, please indicate the area followed by the dollar amount (i.e. General Fund $100, Scholarships $200). You will need to complete the remainder of the form.


If you would prefer to mail your contribution to Biology, please download the Department of Biology Contribution Form to print out, complete, and mail.


Many employers sponsor matching gift programs and will match all or a percentage of any charitable contributions or volunteer hours made by their employees, retirees, and/or spouses.  Check with your company about their matching gift policy or use our HEP Employer Matching Gift Program Database to find out if your company participates.  If your company is eligible, request a matching gift form from your employer, and send it completed and signed with your gift. We will do the rest.

Other types of Gifts


You can give a gift to the Department of Biology in a variety of forms, including cash, in-kind gifts, planned giving, securities, real estate, trusts, life insurance and bequests.  You might even work for a company that will match your gift to Pittsburg State University, there by increasing your contribution.  Gifts to Pittsburg State are tax-deductible to the full extent of the Internal Revenue Code. To learn more about making a gift, please contact Mary Jo Meier, Director of Development for the College of Arts and Sciences, at 620-235-6127 or by e-mail.


Again, thank you for your generous contributions.
