About

The entire month of March is Match Madness at Drury and we are lining up matching money so that every gift can be matched – and your impact doubled!  Everyone can join in the Madness by making a gift to the Annual Drury Experience Fund for Scholarships and Financial Aid – one of our highest priorities for funding through the end of the fiscal year. Scholarships make a huge impact for students each year, helping Drury attract and retain the best and brightest students.

Donors can choose from several areas of study to designate their scholarship gift and there are additional matching opportunities available with class matches – which in some cases allows a donor’s gift to be doubled and even tripled, thanks to matching donors!

For example, donors can designate to:

  • Area of Greatest Need
  • Breech School of Business Scholarships
  • Hammons School of Architecture Scholarships 
  • Natural and Mathematical Sciences Scholarships
  • Communications, Fine and Performing Arts Scholarships
  • Humanities, Social and Behavioral Sciences Scholarships
  • Education and Childhood Development Scholarships
  • Diversity Scholarships
  • Annual Drury Experience Fund (all students eligible)
  • First-Generation Students

We are adding even more Match Madness this year with class year participation matches and competition leading up to Alumni Reunion, April 29-30, 2023. Some donors are matching up to $100 per donor! Class matches make your participation even more important.

Show your spirit, share your love for DU and help transform student lives. Join alumni, friends, parents, faculty, staff, and students in making a gift to make the most of Match Madness today! 

Donors supporting the Annual Drury Experience Fund, area of greatest need, or academic scholarships with a gift of $100 or more* will receive a pair of 5th edition Drury logo dress socks as a thank you gift. Quantities are limited, so don’t delay! 

Did you know that you can recognize your favorite professor(s) or other individuals when you make a gift? Just include your honoree's name in the “in honor of” section of the giving form. We will send them a notification and they will be listed in the Honorary or Memorial section of the Annual Honor Roll of Donors in the fall. 

You can also help us spread the word. Use the sharing buttons below the video to email your friends and share on social media. Be sure to TAG your Drury friends on Facebook! Click on the Advocate Tab and learn how you can have a major impact as a virtual volunteer advocate.

If you have any questions about the campaign, issuing your own match, or becoming a virtual volunteer advocate, please email Phil Willmert at pwillmert@drury.edu. *Gifts of $200 or more will receive two pairs and gifts of $100 or more receive one pair, supplies are limited, so make your gift today!
