Support UMO

Since our establishment in 1951, the mission of the University of Mount Olive has been to transform lives by offering degree programs in a convenient and affordable manner for all students. The University’s vision is to provide an engaging higher education experience nurtured in Christian values to students from all walks of life—from the recent high school graduate excited to start their career, to the adult student looking to better their family’s future through education. Ultimately, your gift supports students in becoming educated citizens who have integrity, values and purpose in life.

Why Give?

Giving to the University of Mount Olive is an investment in our students’ futures. Your gift, no matter the size, can make a difference and help to maintain a high level of excellence that we strive to create. With ninety-seven percent (97%) of our students receiving some form of tuition assistance, private support is essential to our students receiving the best education and experience possible while attending the University of Mount Olive.
