How You Can Give
Please visit druryplannedgiving.org to learn more about your options.
A recurring gift is a gift that is set up to be processed on a set schedule, such as a monthly payment. It can be an opened ended gift that runs until you notify us to stop or can be set up with a specific end date in mind. Due to PCI compliance requirements we do not store credit card information at Drury so recurring gifts can only be set up through the online giving process. Simply follow the steps below and click on the recurring gift button rather than the one-time gift button.
Please visit our webpage www.drury.edu/alumni and click on the MAKE A GIFT button. This will take you to our secure payment site where you can begin by typing in the gift amount and choosing from our pull down list of available funds. If you don't see the fund you are looking for please choose other to type in any notes you might like to make on where you would like your gift to be applied. Click on ADD DONATION and you will be taken to the payment screen and asked for your credit card information. Just click on DONATE NOW when you are finished.
You will receive an email from our office to confirm that your recurring gift has been established and you will receive a consolidated acknowledgement of your recurring gift payments at the end of the calendar year.
Give to student scholarships and open up a world of opportunity to current and future Drury students. Scholarships create life-changing opportunities for Drury students. By giving to a scholarship, you can make a direct impact on a Drury student's future.
To give to a scholarship or create a scholarship in the name of a loved one, please email the Office of University Advancement or contact Debra Course at 417-873-7320.
You have several options when establishing a scholarship:
Annual Scholarship: This type of scholarship is given to students annually. You may choose the amount provided to each student. We ask that your annual scholarship gift provide scholarship funds to a new scholarship applicant for at least 5 years consecutive years.
Endowed Scholarship: This type of scholarship is one in which the principal gift remains intact and only the interest is awarded to a scholarship applicant each year. Once established, your scholarship will be managed by Drury. Your endowment creates a permanent funding source that will grow over time and will support deserving students today and in the future. In order to create an endowed scholarship that will provide the greatest benefit for students, the minimum amount required to endow a scholarship is $25,000.00.
IRS regulations prohibit donors from being involved in the scholarship selection process. Involvement in choosing a scholarship recipient would invalidate the deductibility of this gift.
Due to the extensive list of scholarships already available, we have listed the currently existing scholarships based on intent and restrictions on the toolbar to the left of this page. If you would like additional information about current scholarships, please visit Financial Aid.
Many employers sponsor matching gift programs and will match charitable contributions made by their employees to Drury University. Some companies match gifts made by retirees and/or spouses. The impact of your gift may be doubled or possibly tripled!
If your company matches, you may be able to access the forms needed to make a matching gift through your human resources department or your company website. For questions regarding matching gifts please contact Debra Course, Manager - Gift Stewardship at (417) 873-7320 or firstname.lastname@example.org.

Drury works with several different brokers to accept gifts of securities which you will find here. Board regulations require that we liquidate stock gifts as soon as they are received, however, please be aware that not all brokers check the Drury account on a regular basis. Please let us know that a transfer has been made so that we can notify our broker to watch for it. Letting us know is also a good opportunity for you to let us know how you would like your gift designated.
We would like to make giving as easy as possible for our donors and offer different methods to help you with this process. Please contact our gifts manager, Debra Course, at (417) 873-7320 or email@example.com if you have any questions or need any help.
Instructions for transfer of Stock or Mutual funds:
A direct transfer of stock can go from your account at your stock broker's firm directly into Drury's account number at one of the brokerage firms listed above. You will need Drury's account number to give to your broker and the DTC number (if the receiving firm uses one). Drury appreciates being notified of the transfer of stock and directions on where the donation is to be used. This insures that the gift is distributed correctly according to your preference. The transferred stock becomes a gift when it is registered in Drury's name and under Drury's control.
To calculate the value of the gift, we take the average of the high and low prices of the stock on the date that the stock went into our account at our broker. The total value of the gift is the average multiplied by the number of shares we receive.
