Will you be One in 500?
Thousands of Crowder College students have received support from scholarships,
thanks to generous donors. We have now launched a campaign to raise $500,000
in new endowment funds that will provide income for scholarships and program support forever.
We hope to increase both the number of scholarships and the dollars awarded so we can impact
even more students
While we will gratefully accept gifts of any amount, we hope to receive 500 gifts of $1,000 to establish
the endowment fund. Would you consider becoming One in 500? You can designate earnings from your
gift to support the area of your choosing whether that be scholarships for students in a particular field of
study or to enhance a program such as athletics or theater.
Gifts can be made online here. If you prefer to set up recurring payments over a one-year period
using a credit card or have interest in giving a gift using appreciated stock, please call 417.455.5506
or reach out via email. To give by check, please make payable to
Crowder College Foundation and mail to 601 Laclede Ave., Neosho, MO 64850.
By giving a gift today you become a meaningful partner in educating students in Southwest Missouri
and will make a lasting difference for future generations.
“I am so grateful for those donors for helping me lift a hefty burden off of my tired shoulders. Just when it seemed impossible these scholarships allowed me to pursue my dream career without worry for what it would do to my family financially.” Krista Brashear, Nursing student.
Nov. 10: 18th Annual Festival of Wreaths
We hope to hold Festival of Wreaths in the Elsie Plaster Community Center on the Neosho campus as we have since the event began in 2003. However, we are developing contingency plans that will allow us to transition to a virtual event if necessary due to coronavirus concerns. A decision on the format of the event will be made by October 1. In the meantime, please visit https://one.bidpal.net/fow/welcome or call 417.455.5701 for more information.
