Your support of the UMKC Debate Team gives students opportunities to grow through scholarship and competition.
Sustaining Donor Campaign
We are inviting supporters of the UMKC Debate Team to make a lasting contribution to the sustainability and viability of the team. Recurring donations from a broad group of alumni, supporters and friends will ensure that the opportunity for competitive debate will continue into the furure. Your donation will support both expenses and scholarships that directly allow students to get the most out of their competitive debate experience.
While the University provides generous funding for coaching, travel expenses, and scholarships, the costs associated with maintaining a nationally-competitive squad are always increasing. Your support enables us to give more students the opportunity to experience competitive debate. It also is a strong showcase of the importance of the Debate Team and the support that it enjoys in the UMKC Community
