John W. Connaway Society was established in an effort to
continue the vision of Dr. Connaway. The society is
a symbol of the abiding interest of its members on the
welfare of the college. Founding members of the society
are the backbone of the University of Missouri- Columbia’s
College of Veterinary Medicine.
The John W. Connaway Society has
been formed to encourage private participation in the
support and development of the college, and its membership is dedicated to securing the future of the College
of Veterinary Medicine. Through their active involvement,
founding members maintain the college’s leadership
role and sustain Dr. Connaway’s vision of excellence.
Founding membership in the John W. Connaway Society
is based on prior and current giving to the College
of Veterinary Medicine at the University of Missouri-Columbia.
There are two types of founding memberships, sustaining
and annual. Membership by husband and wife shall be
considered joint membership.
Donors are invited to direct the gift to
whatever fund or purpose the donor desires, provided
the use is for a legitimate college purpose. Donors
may also designate their gifts as unrestricted to support
the needs of the college that cannot be met with state
funds such as scholarships, fellowships, research, faculty
enhancement funds and other projects and programs.
John W. Connaway Society members share the
satisfaction of knowing their philanthropy is critical
to the guidance of College of Veterinary Medicine for
today’s scholars and tomorrow’s veterinarians.
