Together, let's build
a Healthier Mississippi

Here in Mississippi, giving isn’t just something we do. It’s what makes us who we are. And when you give to the Manning Family Fund, you’re helping find new ways to treat and prevent disease. You’re helping care for Mississippians in need. You’re helping make a healthier Mississippi.

About the Manning Family Fund

The Mannings’ Mississippi roots run deep. Archie and Olivia Manning were born, raised, and married in the Delta. Archie launched his legendary football career at Ole Miss.

And while the professional success of their sons Cooper, Peyton, and Eli has made them global citizens, the family still feels a powerful connection to Mississippi—and a desire to give back.

The Manning Family Fund works to:

  • Raise money to help meet the challenges facing Mississippians.
  • Promote the work UMMC is doing to meet those challenges.
  • Garner support for the UMMC missions of education, research, and health care.

Donor Profiles

From generous businesses to caring Mississippians, contributions to the Manning Family Fund come from across the nation—and we’re grateful for every dollar donated.
