In celebrating Drury’s 150th anniversary, The O’Reilly and Wooten families have generously pledged to contribute $1.5 million in matching funds for the O’Reilly-Wooten 150th Anniversary Challenge. Running until May 31, 2024, the challenge will match all donations designated for the Drury Student Success Fund, doubling their impact.
You can contribute directly to support student success through a gift to the Student Success Fund. You have the opportunity to designate your gift to one or more of these targeted areas within the Student Success Fund.
As we celebrate Drury’s 150th anniversary we will commemorate the occasion with special recognition opportunities for donors who contribute to the University during our 150th anniversary year (from June 1, 2023 – May 31, 2024). Recognition levels will be based on the number 150. Donors will receive a sesquicentennial commemorative gift at the following levels:
There are also on campus recognition opportunities available in a new Sesquicentennial Plaza just north of Bay Hall. Donors will be listed on a monument in the plaza at the following levels:
