Durley Endowment Challenge

This campaign ended on July 01, 2019, but you can still make a gift to St. John's College by clicking here!

If you graduated from St. John’s College between 1974 and 1984, now is the chance to quadruple your gift.  

Beginning May 1, The Julia Parks Durley (A80) and W. Laird Durley (SF79, SFGI77) Endowment Challenge Match will match up to the first $40 of every gift made by 1974-84 alumni of the undergraduate Program or Graduate Institute with a gift to the endowment—which will then be doubled by the Winiarski Family Foundation match. 

“It’s not the size of the gift you make, it’s that you make it and when you make it that matters most,” says Laird Durley. “Every alumni gift, however small and whenever made, is an act of faith in the school in its mission, but a gift made right now, at this crucial and critical inception of the new financial model, bespeaks a trust in the old mission and the new financial model that supports it.”  

“The point of our match is not to maximize the dollar amount given so much as it is to maximize the number of givers,” he adds. “Julia and I are just trying to further incentivize small giving.”

Please participate in the Durley Endowment Challenge and make your gift today.

Thank you for your generous support!
