The Mississippi State University Foundation was created in 1962 to attract support from private sources for Mississippi State University. Since that time, the Foundation’s mission has been to build relationships between the institution, its donors and prospective donors. The Foundation exists solely for the benefit of Mississippi State.

Today, the MSU Foundation is a nonprofit, 501(c) (3) organization that receives, invests and administers private support consistent with the university's priorities and mission. Under the guidance of a board of directors and the university's vice president for development and alumni, the Foundation now administers most of the institution’s fundraising activities and endowment funds which total nearly $450 million. The Foundation has been cited in its history by the Council for the Advancement and Support of Education (CASE) for overall improvement in fundraising.

The MSU Foundation is housed, along with the MSU Alumni Association, in the Hunter Henry Center.
