Leave a Lasting Legacy 

This year we have special opportunity for our donors.  Individuals may combine a donation for tax credits with a naming opportunity.  As part of our second floor renovation, we have offices and common spaces available for naming for donations of $1000 to $18,000.  

Many civic minded individuals and organizations have contributed to building the business community we all enjoy.  You can honor these individuals' past achievements and pay homage to future businesses by memorializing them with a plaque at the incubator. Plaques "in honor of" or "in memory of" will be displayed next to the room of your choice.  In addition you will receive a 50% Missouri tax credit for your donation.  

To learn more of how you can leave a lasting legacy, contact  Heather Fisher at or call 417-256-9724. Donations must be made by Dec. 31.

2nd Floor Renovation Update

Construction is moving along. Drywall is up!  We are preserving the old beams in the open lobby.  Join us at the Open House for a tour and reserve your large office today.
