"Missouri Boys State was a pivotal part of my youth. I learned so much about myself and others, as well as government and democracy, during my week in Warrensburg. It makes you more fully appreciate this incredible country in which we live, and this experiment we call democracy. I firmly believe it is an experience not to be missed."

MBS TRUST LAUNCHES WEBSITE TO SUPPORT FUNDRAISING CAMPAIGN

The Missouri Boys State Memorial Trust Board of Trustees announced the launch of a new website today in support of the current Foundations in Leadership Campaign. The website, which is located at www.mbstrust.org, offers detailed information about the mission of the MBS Trust and provides the ability for supporters to make on-line donations by credit card to the Foundations in Leadership Campaign. The campaign formally kicked off at The American Legion Boys State of Missouri in June. The Foundations in Leadership Campaign seeks to boost the Missouri Boys State Memorial Trust by $1,000,000 over the next two years. The MBS Trust received a $250,000 pledge in the form of a challenge grant from an anonymous donor earlier this year. The pledge is contingent on raising $750,000 by the campaign’s end.

The Missouri Boys State Memorial Trust operates solely for the benefit of The American Legion Boys State of Missouri, Inc. The MBS Trust’s mission is to provide for the long-term financial stability of the Boys State program and support specific special programs and scholarships as designated by the MBS Trust board of trustees. The Missouri Boys State Memorial Trust is a not-for-profit 501c3 organization as provided through its affiliation with the Greater Kansas City Community Foundation.
