Sources of Funds

The cooperative extension mission is carried out through funding partnerships from federal, state and local sources. MU Extension’s statewide programs are made possible through support from a variety of partnerships. Funds are appropriated from federal, state and local governments. The organization also generates revenue from contracts, grants, recovery of facilities and administrative costs from grants, fees, gifts, sales and services.

While levels of appropriated funds have remained relatively flat, MU Extension continues to steadily increase the amount of revenue generated from other sources. In FY 2007, for the first time, generated funds exceeded appropriations as a percentage of overall revenue.

All MU Extension funds are leveraged to maximize the impact of high-priority programming delivered to Missourians. Appropriated funds provide a base for matching grants and help build faculty infrastructure on campus and throughout the state. MU Extension faculty, in turn, identify and secure additional resources to further their educational efforts.
